    Hey from so. Cal.

    I am a veteran of message boards, and was really glad to find a place with my own kind. Yes, I ride a bicycle at the beach. We are used to being poked fun at, but we are also a group with a long waiting list to join.

    The thing most people have commented upon with my posting is my southern California attitude. Los Angeles is a national trend setter, anything new, we get it first. We are America's entertainment capitol with celebs and affluence. We also have some of our nation's worst slums. It has been said that out here we live about 15-20 years in the future compared with the rest of the nation.

    We have also been called the land of fruits and nuts!

    So, I try to gear my posting to the reality of the rest of the nation. Sometimes I slip - intentionally like now. For example my wife and I believe it makes no sense that anyone would ruin a perfectly good marriage due to outside sex.

    When the time came for my wife and I to seriously discuss marriage, I said I did not want to give up my nights out (when she is out-of-town, she is a flight attendant), and I initially declined her proposal. You understand it is not as much the outside hookup as it is the freedom to hookup. Oh, hell, I am usually out with the guys at the Penguin beach bar in Venice after work and go straight home!

    So, part of our marriage is nights out on our own if desired. Even some of the guys I work with struggle with our idea, (probably jealous). We are not swingers. That settled neither my wife nor I have been outside the relationship in years. I tell this now, because perhaps some here will have a problem with it. Well, I feel sorry for them. This is 21st century marriage where you write your own rules into a marriage contract that will work for a lifetime. Infidelity would not be grounds for a divorce for us.

    So, things that may seem commnon place to me, may not be to you. Please feel free to call me on it. I believe sexual frustration has ruined many good marriages, if I can offer any ideas to help here, please let me know, but I am no expert, and my reality is not always easy.

    Sounds like you may have had a good time. I was stationed in SoCal when I was in the military many moons ago ( Ronald Reagan was my Commander-in-Chief). Enjoyed most of my time there , accept for the eartquakes.

    Yeah , despite FEMA's best efforts the tourist areas of New Orleans are about back to pre-Katrina conditions.

    Did I miss something? I have not provided any information to OfficerResouce.com besides my details in my profile. Someone please let me know if there are further requirements to fulfill.

    I am glad to be more a part of straight talk here. I have some questions I want to get around to in "Ask a cop" in time. Where I live and work. Santa Monica's affluent conservatives and liberals, are mainly white anglo saxon protestants requiring officers sensitive to our citizens. You do not treat a person like, (for example), Alan Alda the same way you treat a Vice-President of the Bank of America. Directly south of Santa Monica is Venice where I live because I can afford it, and it is close to work. It is a lot like living in Greenwich Village with carnies on the street every night!

    In Santa Monica we have a beautiful four story American Youth Hostile. These young people come from powerful families around the planet which is why we have a police substation across the street. Problems with these young people can involve the U. S. State Department. One screw up can be all she wrote for a police officer. But, I do not think I need to tell you that. Every community has its outside influences.

    I would imagine other communities do as we do with our homeless. Every homeless person eventually decides they want our climate, and to benefit from our welfare. The City Fathers of Santa Monica built a facility with dorm rooms. I myself go over a couple times a week (out of uniform) to fix gourmet hot dogs on the grill. Most homeless come to Santa Monica and we send them to an extremely devout evangelical shelter 15 miles inland. The homeless we keep are mainly military veterans who are down. They sleep in the dorms during the day, and sleep in Ocean Park or around town at night with a cell phone, (though most of them do not need it - they can take care of themselves). The City of Santa Monica believes that the homeless should be seen around affluence, perhaps because it is a wave of the future, but certainly because it is added security. People in Santa Monica are very concerned about "keeping it real," which can be difficult as we live in the Twilight Zone. Meanwhile, down in our Venice apartment my wife and I practically have to walk over meth freaks to get to our cars.

    While the politics of police in our area is diverse, we all agree with constructive problem solving, and there are few disagreements. I would not want to be anywhere else.


    Santa Monica Pier, the official beginning of the famous Route 66.
    Anyone can park all day in Santa Monica for $5.
    Santa Monica sees itself as an "open door," and downplays elitism.
