Secret Life

March 5, 2010 | By Joe Mozingo
The marine biologist picks his way down a mud ravine into the belching, bellowing madness of Cardwell Point. All eyes are upon him, this short ruddy creature with an orange jacket, red beard and sturdy legs that seem to glide effortlessly across the sand. Brent Stewart has studied elephant seals for 31 years and knows they are watching him. He scans the wind-scoured sand spit for rogue bulls -- bilious giants of blubber, muscle, whisker and teeth. They come here from the deepest, coldest reaches of the North Pacific to mate, and they don't like interlopers.

Ten years ago, Bill Bordley just said no. The All-CIF standout at Bishop Montgomery and All-Pac-10 pitcher at USC was that most coveted of baseball properties in 1978--a left-hander whose fastball was consistently in the 94- to 95-m.p.h. range. But as the prize prospect of the coming January, 1979, major league draft, Bordley decided to play by his own rules, a risky ploy in a situation where the draftee has little leverage.

To some people - those who might attend a guerrilla reading in San Francisco, for example - Ken Baumann is a writer and small-press publisher who is part of the contemporary literary vanguard. And yet, to a generation of adolescent girls, he's instantly recognizable as a star of the beloved ABC Family series "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," now in its last season. "As long as I can do both, why wouldn't I want to?" Baumann asks at an L.A. cafe. He's lanky and pale-skinned, making it easy to see why he was cast as a high school student in 2008 (he's now 23)

Leading a double life would seem to be the exclusive domain of professional spies, fictional secret agents and undercover operatives with foreign accents. But seemingly ordinary men and women sometimes hide extraordinary secrets from those closest to them: their families, friends and co-workers. Consider the well-respected chief executive who embezzles funds from his company. The man with two wives and two sets of children who know nothing of one another's existence.

For more than 20 years, I've been writing about local history, and never once has Southern California let me down. I've found no shortage of tycoons and beggars, dreamy spiritualists, mad-eyed killers. This 227-year-old city has had a few angels, but it's the others who often make for the most fascinating storytelling.

There are surely good reasons for CBS airing its latest Sunday night movie beyond suckering viewers into believing it contains juicy stuff about the late Princess Diana. But just try to think of one. "The Biographer: The Secret Life of Princess Di" tells no secrets in purporting to relate what led Andrew Morton to write his bestseller, "Diana: Her True Story."
