"What do people work for?" Assemblyman Tom Hayden challenged a classroom of 90 Santa Monica City College students. "Meaning," someone offered. "Consumption," said another. "Vacation!" Hayden answered. "And where do they like to go? Nature! For some reason they have a need for blue skies, for going fishing, for exposing their kids to this cycle.

During a public speaking class at Santa Monica College, student Jon Abkar gave an anatomically specific speech describing oral sex. His talk was too much, even for some Santa Monicans. A woman in the class complained to the college equal opportunity/diversity officer, Jo Ann R. Fielder.

Just a pier's length away from Santa Monica's Ivy at the Shore, where yuppies sup on $25 seafood entrees, scores of fisher folk brave the brine to get theirs for free.

Sure enough, on the lower deck, Jose Flores, father of 10, beams over a four-foot leopard shark.
