The Mountain Play’s 100th production of, “The Sound of Music,” just opened. Have you seen it? No I haven’t. I’m not going to be able to because I’m doing another show and I have to rehearse on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s for a small professional company called Porchlight Theatre, and I open on the 21st of June, so I’m not going to be able to see the Mountain Play this year. So this is the first year in how long? 30 years. (laughs) Can you talk a bit more about your upcoming show? James Dunn, 20)FSPPG.BSJO I’m doing a play called 4DBQJOP which is a farce comedy [Frank Dunlop and Jim Dale adapted it from Moliere’s story of the deceitful valet, Scapin]. Porchlight Theatre performs outdoors behind the barn in Ross [in the Redwood Amphitheater at the Marin Art and Garden Center]. The College of Marin named its new theatre in your honor—was that a surprise? Yes, oh definitely a surprise, yes. I never expected anything like that. It was a real shock and honor. But a great honor. Are you working on any projects there? Well I will be. I just finished a show there when they opened the theater-- it was in conjunction with the musical #JH3JWFS, about Huckleberry Finn. I won’t be doing anything there until the spring of next year. You don’t seem very “retired” during your retirement… (Laughs) No, no…People keep thinking I’m retired, but I just stopped doing the Mountain Play. But I’m not retired; I’m still working. I still do shows. I don’t teach full time anymore so I guess you could call me semi-retired, but I’m still working in theater and I still do plays and I’ll keep doing them until I’m carried out. What do you have lined up next at the James Dunn Theatre at College of Marin? I’m going to be doing Shakespeare’s 5IF 5BNJOH PG UIF 4ISFX next spring [Dunn’s “wild west” take on 5IF5BNJOHPGUIF4ISFX was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the late 1960s]. Then I’m doing a play in Ross Valley in the early winter, called Journey’s End. Do you still teach at the College of Marin? Yes, I teach in the spring. I teach a Shakespeare class. I just finished up in fact this spring. So you are busy… Oh yes, I’ve always been busy. It’s just I do different things. (laughs) If you had one wish for the future of the Marin theater scene, what would it be? One wish, gee, I just want it to keep growing and expanding and keep being good that’s all.

››LETTERS Sanction the sanctions!
[Regarding Joanne Williams’ May 10 story, “Drawing a New Line in the Sand,” about Middle East expert and peace activist David Harris]: I visited Iran in 2007 and 2010 and was VERY warmly received by the Iranian people. They LOVE Americans. At least they did in 2010, before the increasingly severe sanctions had taken such a heavy toll. Our Congress thinks the sanctions will pressure the Iranian government into coming to the bargaining table, but the opposite is true. The sanctions create the need for a black market and give the Iranian government’s military wing, the Revolutionary Guard, an opportunity to get rich by controlling this lucrative underground industry. The harsher the sanctions, the happier they are, and the more powerful they become. The Revolutionary Guard WANTS stronger sanctions. Congressman Jared Huffman is a cosponsor of HR 850, a new, harsher sanctions bill. This bill will prevent our president from lifting sanctions in exchange for concessions at the bargaining table and will weaken his ability to negotiate. Congressman Huffman’s sponsorship is poorly researched and illadvised. Please call his ofﬁce (202/225-5161) and urge him to change his position. We DO NOT want to involve the United States in another war and this is where the sanctions are taking us. To learn more, visit the “Dear Iran Project” on Facebook. Jes Richardson, Woodacre
We know what you’re thinking, ladies: ‘But is he single....?’ Regarding Nikki’s column [“You Get What You Pay For,” May 31] about who pays for the ﬁrst date. Here are the red ﬂags that she neglected to look at: Maybe the guy didn’t pay because he
didn’t like Jen and that was his way of getting rid of her. I can tell you that if the guy had really found her very attractive from the beginning and had found her so enchanting he would of not waited that long to go out with her, he probably just went out with her to kill some time. There are a lot of jerks out there but also here in Marin there is a propensity for women to tell each other they are beautiful when in reality they are average. Unfortunately that leads to women setting themselves up for failure by going into a date placing a higher value on themselves than is really deserved and by thinking that the man should be happy to be out with her. When in fact she should be happy he is there. If you or your girlfriends ﬁnd a man that treats you well, is interesting, attractive, your age and self-sufﬁcient and—when you see him you are attracted to him—then take a step back and think, “What can I do to keep him interested?”—as opposed to thinking that it’s his job to make you happy. Because, remember, men that have these qualities have a lot of options when it comes to women. I thought it was funny when she thought that he would never see her naked. He might have been thinking, “Thank goodness I will never have to see this woman naked.” By the way I always pay for everything. Even when the woman doesn’t deserve it.
concept of the Common Good, and other stuff like the dude picking up the check on the ﬁrst date and then pretty much every date to follow, disappeared almost overnight. The ’60s are overrated, man. I cannot imagine my dad not picking up a tab on any date with my mom, particularly when they were “new,” and I cannot imagine my three sons not picking up a tab on their dates, at the outset of a budding relationship and for some time thereafter. Anything else is lame-ass behavior. And I don’t think paying for dinner has anything to do with gender equality. It has to do with class and distinction, courtesy and civility. There can be no progress without change, but not all change is progress.

Skip Corsini, San Rafael One-room schoolhouses of the Old West were rarely ever massacred by AK15’s... therefore the only logical solution is to outlaw multi-room schools.
What did Lunny know about lease, and when did he know it?
Also can’t call ‘em ‘broads’ and ‘skirts’ anymore... Nikki’s piece about the deadbeat attorney who wanted to go halfsies on dinner on a ﬁrst date after waiting three frickin’ months to set it up brings up a theory I have about the overall cultural transition from my late pop’s generation (he was born in 1917) to mine (born in 1951). A lot of good “baby” got thrown out with the “bathwater” in the turbulent 1960s. Stuff that was useful in our culture, such as the
Newtown teachers and staff been armed with guns—with the will to use them in self-defense—the only news story we’d likely be discussing is one dead lunatic, and the 27 lives those guns saved. Until murdering psychopaths can be isolated and neutralized, guns, ironically, are the only solution.
A lot of ‘hey, baby...’ got thrown out with the bathwater in the ‘60s...
Have we learned nothing from all these baseball bat massacres? Gun control advocates always confuse causation with correlation [“Shooting From The Hip,” May 31.] Guns don’t cause these massacres and “gun violence”—mental defect and criminal intent do. Guns are inanimate tools, just like knives, baseball bats, cars, matches, gasoline: all common things occasionally used for horriﬁc purposes. Have you noticed that after 50 years of stiffer and stiffer restrictions on guns—more and more massacres are happening? Schoolyard massacres never happened in this country 50 or 100 years ago when we had few, if any, gun laws. Obvious conclusion? Gun laws don’t work. Why? Because guns aren’t the problem. People are the problem. Until the causes are identiﬁed and ﬁxed, restricting guns from law-abiding citizens is useless and irrational. Massacres and crimes will continue. Further, to ban and conﬁscate guns altogether is as ludicrous as banning cars from private ownership to prevent bank robberies, as bank robbers use stolen getaway cars to rob banks. Should we also ban matches and gasoline—things the Columbine shooters brought to the school and intended to use? And if you think you don’t need personal ﬁrearms because the police will protect you from psychos, that theory didn’t work for the 27 murdered in Newtown, where the police response was too late to prevent even a single death. Had a few or even one of the
Regarding Harry Martin’s letter [“Business Destroyed by ‘Noxious Invasive Weed’ of Wilderness Act,” May 31] about Lunny’s oyster farm continuing to operate in deﬁance of the law. Mr. Martin seems to be ignorant of the fact that the farm is in Drake’s Estero, not Tomales Bay. The Estero IS protected by the Wilderness Act. The Department of the Interior, the National Park Service and the EPA exist for a good reason: to protect parks and wilderness areas. Mr. Lunny knew when he acquired the farm that the lease allowing it to exist would become void in 2012. National parks and seashores are entrusted to the feds for preservation, not for the sake of commerce or moneyed interests. Wild lands and wildlife, by deﬁnition, must be given priority over them. To allow the farm to continue would be to broach the public trust. I support former Interior Secretary Salazar’s ruling on these grounds. Many parks are already at risk from encroachment by tourists and the businesses they spawn. Yosemite Valley is so overcrowded in summertime I refuse to go there. If oyster farms have been successful and present in Tomales Bay “for generations,” as Mr. Martin says, perhaps Lunny could move his operation there. He could then keep his “sustainable” agribusiness, provide the jobs he is now providing, and enhance the ability of the National Seashore to return to its previously pristine state. This may be a truly environmentally friendly solution. Lastly, when I see the word “natural” these days, I become suspicious. (In Mr. Martin’s letter, he writes “...the government seeking to destroy a natural, local small business.”) This word is so abused that one is hard-pressed to ﬁnd something UN-natural. Petroleum is a good example: entirely natural, containing all the attendant carbon-based compounds, which might best be left exactly where Nature put it: deep in the ground.

‘Direct’ hit to the Board San Rafael to pony up $250,000 for slightly early vote on Adams? by Pe te r S e id m an
isgruntled San Rafael residents are fanning out in supervisorial District 1 to collect signatures in an effort to recall Supervisor Susan Adams. They say Adams has refused to bow to the will of her constituents. Critics of the recall effort say it’s a subversion of the democratic process. Critics also say the residents upset with Adam’s positions on a variety of issues should have waited until 2014, when her term expires and she’s up for re-election. A regularly scheduled election for her supervisorial seat is set for June 2014. If the move to collect enough signatures to get a recall measure on the ballot succeeds by September, a recall election most likely would be held in March 2014, just a few months earlier than the regularly scheduled June election. If Adams beats back the recall effort, no matter what happens in a regularly scheduled election, she would serve out her term, which lasts until the end of 2014. Alyssa Chacko, one of the leaders of the recall effort, says District 1 residents can’t wait for the normal democratic electoral process to play out, given major decisions supervisors will make in 2014. Removing Adams in March would prevent the supervisor from participating in votes through the end of the year that could change the face of the county, according to Chacko. “Given the amount of misrepresentation, half truths, plans that weren’t disclosed, notices that were not given and everything
else,” says Chacko, leaving Adams in office could be disastrous. Chacko and the rest of the group that wants Adams recalled say Adams has failed to represent her constituents on a number of key issues, including a floodcontrol plan for levees in Santa Venetia, determining the best site for a new emergency services building and a number of other issues. But more than anything it’s the position that Adams has taken on affordable housing that has ticked off the group that wants her ouster. The recall effort is about more than affordable housing, Chacko maintains, but affordable housing “is the straw that broke the camel’s back.” The group working on the recall says Adams’ support of affordable housing in the Marinwood Plaza redevelopment project and other sites puts an unfair burden on District 1. They also tie Adams to what they see as government overreach in the Plan Bay Area process that is leading to a regional planning policy that connects housing and transportation. In addition to some substantive policy issues that the group says Adams has followed and with which they disagree, the recall leaders are throwing out other amorphous accusations, perhaps in the heat of a political battle, perhaps in an effort to whip up anger. Chacko says Adams refuses to hold large “town hall type” meetings with her constituents to discuss policy issues. 10 >

The art festival must go on! Start dusting off your mahogany wall frames, art lovers— the Marin Art Festival will go on. The fate of the venerable festival was up in the air last month, as the event’s suppliers—the folks who provide security, tents, portable bathrooms, etc.—requested to be paid upfront, according to festival officials. In years past, ticket sales from the event generated the chunk of change that closed the tab for the suppliers after the two-day festival came to an end. This year’s payday switch-a-roo left festival organizers with little time and little money. But Marinites reached into their pocketbooks to support the festival’s Indiegogo Campaign, which raised awareness about the art fest’s plight and brought in nearly $20,000. Festival officials say they still have a ways to go to reach their initial $38,000 fundraising goal and, although the Indiegogo window closed on June 2, folks can continue to donate. If MAF falls short of its goal, say festival spokespeople, the event may feature fewer tents—and other supplies. The Marin Art Festival takes place at the Marin County Fairgrounds on June 15-16. For more information on the festival or how you can help or donate, visit marinartfestival.com. —Stephanie Powell Supervisors embark on rare road trip Call it the Yalta of North Bay supervisor meetings. The Marin County Board of Supervisors this week took part in the first joint meeting with neighboring county supes in almost 90 years. The Marin board convened with the supervisors from Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties in an effort to collaborate on regional issues and discuss topics of common interest, according to county officials. The gaggle of board members met June 4 in Hatt Hall at the Napa River Inn, 500 Main St. in Napa. Marin’s District 5 Supervisor Judy Arnold called it an opportunity to “share ideas and successes with our neighboring counties.” Although the Marin and Sonoma boards met in 2003, the North Bay Counties Joint Special Meeting was the first multiple board meeting since 1924. The agenda included a presentation on Marin Clean Energy, a discussion about transportation issues, updates on the Affordable Healthcare Act, and an overview of regional planning agencies. —SP
Cigarettes meet their meter Marinites got their, er, butts down to San Rafael City Plaza last week, as the San Rafael Clean Coalition debuted its latest method of tidying the streets—a “cigarette eater meter.” The public art piece is an 8-foot tall metal display designed as a colorful, oversized parking meter with an invitation to “park your butts here” emblazoned across the top. For each cigarette butt deposited in the slot, one cent will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Society to support the homeless. When the meter reaches 100,000 butts, Clean Coalition sponsor Bellam Self Storage and Boxes will donate another $1,000 to the campaign, and another unnamed donor has offered to match that with another $1,000. With more than 10,000 butts littered every three to four days in San Rafael, this display takes on a dirty problem with a philanthropic twist. The metal marvel was designed by artists Enrique Goldenberg and Ventana Amico and features a series of educational depictions and facts about cigarette-butt littering. Cigarette butts are the most littered item in the city, according to Clean Coalition officials, who say they collected more than 238,000 cigarette butts over the course of three months last year.

VCommuters on the Golden Gate ferries usually relax and take in stunning views of the city, Alcatraz and Mt. Tam. Last Monday evening, passengers traveling from San Francisco to Larkspur on the M.V. Golden Gate took in a stunning view of a different sort. Four kayakers caught in rough weather on the bay ended up in the shipping lane, with large vessels approaching. The Golden Gate pulled alongside two of the kayakers, a mother and her young son, and got them safely aboard the ferry. The M.V. Napa, another ferry in the fleet, wasn’t far behind and rescued the two remaining kayakers, a man and a 5-year-old boy. We salute the skilled captains and crew of Marin’s Golden Gate Ferry service.

WThough it pains us to declare a judge guilty of handcuffing freedom of the press, we must. Marin Superior Court Judge Andrew Sweet is “denying” the Pacific Sun’s media request to have a photographer shoot the Joseph Naso court proceedings. For the second time in a month, his honor has kept Marin’s only locally owned newspaper from showing the residents (who vote for him, we add) images from one of the most talkedabout court proceedings in county history. Now, there may be a perfectly understandable reason for barring the Sun’s photographer from the courtroom, but if there is Judge Sweet is keeping mum; court assistant Jackie left a message simply saying “he didn’t give a reason.” Despite Judge Sweet’s “denial,” our reporting on the trial will continue. —Nikki Silverstein

< 8 ‘Direct’ hit to the Board Chacko maintains that Adams promotes a “divide and conquer” process. The supervisor, says Chacko, holds meetings in small groups in different neighborhoods in a scheme to pit one neighborhood against another. Adams holds meetings with 10 or 12 people, says Chacko, “and I have an example where she told people in [the Los Ranchitos neighborhood] that if they support the Marinwood development [which includes affordable housing], she would work to get the [affordable housing] inventory sites off of the Housing Element for their area. She’s done the same, pitting neighborhoods against each other, in Lucas Valley. She makes statements at these little meetings that are inconsistent.” That’s a harsh accusation, one that Adams fervently denies. “I never said that,” says Adams referring to the Chacko accusation that Adams had said that in exchange for support on Marinwood, she would work toward stopping affordable housing from coming to a neighborhood. “This is another example of the many pieces of misinformation and fabrications.” Adams says she never offered any quid pro quo. The charge that she’s unresponsive to her constituents likewise is fabricated, says Adams. “I find it ironic that when most people are complaining that their public officials aren’t engaging with them, I provide my home phone number and I meet with people individually. The reason I was having some smaller house meetings was because some members of the community felt intimidated and unable to express their views or ask their questions in the environment of a larger meeting.” Chacko says, “The community has asked over and over again for a large town hall meetings to notice the community, inform the community and take questions, and we have been denied that.” That accusation is aimed at Plan Bay Area and
affordable housing. Adams notes that two large meetings were held last year. And she played a key role in setting up a large meeting just last week regarding Plan Bay Area. But opponents of Plan Bay Area and affordable housing say that elected leaders might hold meetings and listen to comments and questions, but the elected leaders don’t do much to follow through on the desires the constituents express. Although the residents behind the recall effort say they have problems with many positions that Adams holds, affordable housing seems to be the heart of their concern. Chacko says the amount of affordable housing envisioned for District 1 is intolerable. She says that 70 percent of the affordable housing in unincorporated Marin is envisioned for District 1. “And not just in the district but in a small, five-mile area of the district.” Adams says the recall backers “are getting confused” about the role of the county’s housing element, “which is something our county has done every five years for decades to let the state know where the different land is zoned for housing opportunity.” For example, she says, the Lucas Grady Ranch is open as an opportunity site, with a “certain amount of housing potential.” That doesn’t mean, however, that the site will be developed to the maximum level or at all. It still needs a developer, and the developer would have to go through an environmental review and planning process. And there’s a big difference between a Plan Bay Area priority development area and potential development area. Marinwood Plaza, for example, is only a potential site, according to Adams. Nothing is written in stone—or wood. “They keep perpetuating [the prodevelopment hypothesis],” says Adams, “because it fans the flame of fear and people get afraid, then they get angry, then they think that somehow things are going WWW.SAVEMARINWOOD.COM
Adams met with about 200 Marinwood residents last October at Mary Silveira Elementary School to discuss proposed development of Marinwood Plaza. 10 PACIFIC SUN JUNE 7 - JUNE 13, 2013
to get by them without them having a say. The public always has a say.” The charge that Marin elected officials might listen to the public’s say about affordable housing but not act on it echoes a charge leveled at the Plan Bay Area process in general. It’s really about direct democracy versus representative democracy. The two forms of government ride a continuum. In the direct democracy permutation, also known as pure democracy, policies come from the people and elected officials are sent to governing agencies to carry out the wishes of the people. In the representative democracy permutation, constituents decide on the best candidate and accept that the candidate is equipped to gather information and make informed decisions. Backers of the recall essentially are engaged in a direct-democracy effort. They think they know the best policies the county, and District 1, should follow, and they want Adams to bow to their wishes. Richard Rubin is a public relations consultant who lives in Strawberry. He has a long track record in the political and civic life of the county. “I’m not generally in favor of using recalls other than sparingly. They should require special circumstances. If they are used for virtually any reason, they lose their value.” There’s little question that recalls are appropriate in cases of extreme malfeasance in office.
But virtually no one, except the backers of the recall, has said Adams qualifies under that criterion. “In my opinion, if someone wants to change something, which is what recall does, they have the procedure to do so,” says Rubin. “It’s called an election.” Politicians can never satisfy all of their constituents, says Rubin. In the case of District 1, however, the animus toward Adams is exhibited by recall backers who seem to “have run out of charity for Supervisor Adams,” which underscores their push for a recall election so close to a normally scheduled ballot. “You have a democratic process that’s running amok,” says Rubin. “This is what happens sometimes when you have a direct democracy. You pay a price for it. This seems to be a minority who are dissatisfied with the way things are going and who want essentially to take the law into their own hands.” Rubin also notes that recalls can have a deleterious effect on the democratic process. “It encourages others in the future to use this device with little or no reason.” If the Adams recall succeeds, disgruntled constituents down the road could point to it and think they could replicate the success. “That is not the way [the political process] should function,” says Rubin. Adams was first elected in 2002. She ran unopposed in 2006. She won a hotly

Ross Valley Sanitary sues former sewer guru Former Ross Valley sanitary czar Brett Richards is flushed with more legal woes—this time from his old sewage soulmates at the RV Sanitary District, which just filed a lawsuit against the one-time RVSD general manager seeking $339,000. The lawsuit stems from a $350,000 loan made to him by the district upon his hiring in 2010—the funds were expressly to be used for Richards to purchase Bay Area housing. But when reports surfaced two years later that no such purchase was on file with any county recorder in the state, Richards abruptly resigned from his $197,000-a-year position and may have gone into hiding. His whereabouts were unknown as of April, when the Marin County District Attorney’s office filed charges against him for misappropriation of public funds, embezzlement and money laundering. A warrant was issued for his arrest and bail was set at $1 million. —Jason Walsh Oyster farm dives away from Cause of Action Drakes Bay Oysters is shucking its controversial legal defense team, Cause of Action. The oyster company announced the parting of the ways this week, citing a disagreement over the conservative-linked government watchdog group’s response to a news report about Drakes Bay’s fight to extend its operating lease in the Point Reyes National Seashore. The Inverness oyster farm has been enmeshed in a legal battle to keep the bivalves pumping since November, when then-Interior Secretary Ken Salazar allowed the oyster farm’s lease to expire at the end of the 40-year “special use” permit granted in 1972 by the Park Service. But a PBS NewsHour segment aired May 1 about the Drakes Bay controversy garnered the ire of Cause of Action, which had been handling the legal reins for the mariculture farm. On May 17, Cause of Action delivered a terse letter of reprimand to PBS, suggesting the broadcast sided against the oyster farm and called for NewsHour producers to turn over source material and footage edited from the broadcast. But Drakes Bay owner Kevin Lunny reportedly wasn’t pleased with the oyster farm’s connection to the letter and last week cut ties with Cause of Action. While Cause of Action has certainly helped the oyster farm in its ongoing court saga, the legal aid hasn’t come without its share of baggage—notably Cause of Action director Dan Epstein’s years working with Tea Party funders the Koch brothers. Many local Drakes Bay supporters expressed discomfort with Cause of Action’s role in such an environmental battle. In the NewsHour segment, Drakes Bay Oysters supporter and Marin Agricultural Land Trust founder Phyllis Faber suggested Cause of Action’s real goal is to use the Drakes Bay struggle as a way pave the way for the “establishment [of commercial businesses] on other public lands.” —JW
contested challenge from former Assemblywoman Kerry Mazzoni in 2010. Rubin says a majority of voters cast ballots for Adams, and the political process should honor that choice of the majority until the next regularly scheduled election. Cost for a recall election could run the county $254,712. That’s an estimate based on past elections, according to Elaine Ginnold, Marin County registrar of voters. The cost of a recall election would be between $8 and $10 per registered voter in District 1, which has 31,839 registered voters. The $254,712 figure comes from a per-voter cost of $8. The cost of the election has been a contentious issue in the run up to the signature gathering stage, especially because the recall vote would be so close to the regularly scheduled June election. Backers say the cost could be considerably less than if the county uses a mail-in ballot. If the county goes for a mail-in ballot, the estimated cost would be $191,000 according to Ginnold. But there’s a catch. Recall backers have until Sept. 17 to collect 6,368 signatures from the district’s registered voters. As soon as they submit the signatures, Ginnold can estimate when an election could be held. After receiving the signatures, Ginnold’s office has 30 working days to check for valid signatures. Then the Board of Supervisors has 14 days to deliberate and set an election date. The supervisors could call for a mail-in ballot or an in-person ballot. The election must
be held no earlier than 88 days from the date supervisors call for it and no later than 125 days. Given the multiple deadlines inherent in the process, Ginnold says she can’t predict when a recall election would land on a ballot. She can, however, say that it probably would be in the first quarter of 2014. If recall backers want to reduce the cost of the election with a write-in ballot, they must qualify their signatures in time to meet deadlines for a March 4 mail-in ballot. (Mail-in ballots can be used only on specified election dates.) Adams is gathering forces to mount a dual campaign, one to fight the recall effort and one to have in place should the recall effort fail and she moves on to a ballot in June 2014. Adams says the recall effort blocks discussion about legitimate issues, such as schools and transportation and public safety, which should be the focus of an election campaign. A recall election short-circuits the process. And the recall effort, notes Rubin, could backfire on its supporters. (Think Gray Davis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.) “It means I have to launch my campaign a few months earlier than anticipated,” says Adams, “but it gives me a head start on fundraising and setting the stage for reelection should I decide that is what I am going to do.” <

bout 50 years ago the ﬁrst issue of the Paciﬁc Sun saw the light of day, born in a tiny room attached to Ed’s Superette in Stinson Beach. The ﬁrst issue, dated April 4, 1963, was two pages of news from the coast—Stinson Beach to Pt. Reyes Station. Its tone was earnest and folksy. Five hundred copies were printed. Graphically, the paper was a mess. The Sun didn’t look like much. But something signiﬁcant had happened in the history of Marin. The next 50 years saw astonishing changes in the county, changes the paper both wrote about and played a big role in creating. The changes came in numbers, in mind-set and in a reputation both real and bogus. And the changes are neatly embodied in the work of two women who wrote for the Sun, Barbara Boxer and Cyra McFadden. 14>

Before exploring those days it’s helpful to follow advice from my favorite cartoon character back then: Bullwinkle Moose. As that TV show’s Mr. Peabody would say, let’s get into the Way-Back Machine. Let’s see what Marin was like just before the Sun arrived on the scene...
In 1940, Marin was a woodsy, bucolic enclave with a population of 52,907. Commuting to the city was a civilized affair often done on a network of electric trains until buses began to take over that year. On the train it took just an hour to go from Fairfax to San Francisco and the round-trip ticket was 50 cents. That covered the cost of the train to Sausalito and then a boat ride to the Ferry Building. And back. Stirrings of concern for the environment were present in certain patrician quarters. Two women,

again, topped the list. The imposing Mrs. Lovell White had pushed to create the Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley to battle rampant tree cutting. Caroline Livermore in Ross had led the creation of the Marin Conservation League. But the tenor of Marin was mainly reﬂected in its politics: sturdy, small-town Republicanism; no change wanted. But change was on the way. After World War II ended in 1945, newcomers poured across the 8-year-old Golden Gate Bridge. By 1950 population had soared to 85,619, up 62 percent in 10 years. In the next 10 years it grew by 61,201, up 71 percent. And by 1970 it was up another 40 percent, to 206,038. In 30 years Marin’s population had grown by 153,136; it had basically quadrupled. (In the 42 years afterward, population increased by an average of less than one-half per cent per year.) As for the extra 153,136 people in 30 years, that’s the numbers. Additionally, the kind of people in Marin

had changed. In the 1956 presidential election Marin voted 66 percent Republican; in last year’s election the vote was 23 percent Republican. Back in 1963 into West Marin came Merril and Joann Grohman and their blended family of 11 children, plus some goats. Merril was an energetic newspaper nut. He liked to start papers; he was long on new ideas. But he was short on attention span, which is needed to keep a newspaper going. Before the Paciﬁc Sun he had started the weekly Carmichael Courier outside Sacramento. After a brief life, it died. In Stinson he and Joann started the Sun and for three years tried one thing after another. Merril’s answer to a money-losing venture was often to start another money-losing venture. At one point in 1964 there was the Paciﬁc Sun in Stinson, the Tamalpais Times in Mill Valley, the Valley Sun in the San Geronimo Valley and the Fairfax News. They all coalesced into Marin County’s Weekly

Paciﬁc Sun and Tamalpais Times and then into Marin County’s Twice Weekly Paciﬁc Sun and Tamalpais Times. Labor costs were modest since family members did everything. But all the papers lost money. At this point, in 1966, I arrived on the scene, eager to do something other than work for the Hearst Corporation. I had graduated from Princeton in 1955 with a degree in history and zero newspaper experience. Somehow I fell into the work and fell in love with it, ﬁrst at the WinstonSalem Journal, then the Miami Herald, then covering Grand Prix auto racing for Car and Driver magazine in Europe, then at the San Francisco Examiner as assistant news editor, executive sports editor and then Sunday editor. I was living in Mill Valley when I picked up a copy of the Paciﬁc Sun and was intrigued. It was liberal, championed the environment, education and the arts and 16>

it displayed good writing. The writing was not the stilted formulaic stuff found in most newspapers, but actual good writing with style and insight. I had been hooked on those ingredients since coming across the Village Voice, the nation’s ﬁrst alternative weekly, started in 1955 in New York City. The Sun, the nation’s second alternative paper, had the germ of a splendid new kind of journalism—a weekly paper with magazine depth and ﬂair. The Sun still looked like a mess, but there was hope. It owned one of the ﬁrst new web offset presses, which meant it could reproduce photos much better than was possible on the presses used by all the daily papers, and it was at least possible to go beyond that into compelling design.

At age 32 my newspaper experience was varied, but my business experience was nonexistent. I couldn’t read a ﬁnancial statement if my life depended on it. And, as it turned out, my life nearly did depend on it. I took out another mortgage on my house, bought the paper, waved goodbye to the Grohmans and was instantly in way over my head.

explosion and responded as best they knew how: Let’s make a buck. Cutting down a lot of troublesome trees and putting up tract houses in their place made sense to them. Only years later did they come to realize that it was exactly the trees that made Marin’s houses so valuable and them so rich. Politics in the county was an ingrown, small-town affair. West Marin’s supervisor was George Ludy, owner of the Rite Price Market in Inverness, pal of Ross Valley supervisor and San Anselmo candy-store owner Bill Fusselman, whose wife, Ada, basically ran the Marin Junior College board of trustees and was said to draw up its annual budget on the back of a brown paper bag while sitting at her kitchen table. Real power in county politics was held by the Courthouse Gang. It was led by George Jones, the county clerk, whose friends might have their driveways paved by a county road crew.

In tune with this was the daily Marin Independent Journal. Today the I-J is the shrunken arm of the Silicon Valley Mercury News, which is an outpost of a media group located in the East Bay, which is run by a conglomerate in Denver. But back then the I-J was a proud and powerful local operation owned by the families of Wishard Brown and Jack Craemer. For years it was the only game in town. It was boring, but so was the old Marin. The I-J’s approach, empty of insight, was exempliﬁed by City Editor Andy Anderson, a crotchety soul who wanted every name in a story to have a middle initial, but didn’t much care if stories went below surface facts and explained the actual meaning of the news. Anderson drove teachers in Marin crazy because he wanted stories about their pay re-computed to reﬂect the fact they had a three-month summer vacation. Teachers making $18,000 a year really were being paid at the rate

of $24,000 a year because, you see, they were making $2,000 a month. Never mind that they never saw the “extra” $6,000. What the old-timers, politicians and newspaper owners had not realized was that not only was Marin exploding with new people, they were a different kind of people. These new people cared a lot about the environment, education, the arts and the changes sweeping the nation in the ’60s. They liked rock music, hated the Vietnam War, believed in women’s rights, sometimes smoked dope and saw nothing wrong with long hair on males. This latter point could be a biggie—the cross country coach at Redwood High was ﬁred by the hard-ass athletic director for letting his No. 1 runner wear his hair over his ears. The Sun took up these issues with a passion, and with memorable writing, ﬁne photos, bold layout, high-impact graphics and the occasional four-letter word. We focused on people.

kill the crazy schemes listed above. Our writers had their own voices, and although the pay was modest (to say the least), the writers were superb. They hung around because they got to write what they cared about in a way that expressed who they were. For example, back then I had zero interest in San Quentin (although for the past ﬁve years I have spent half of every week there advising the inmate newspaper). But reporters Alice Yarish and Eve Pell were powerfully engaged. So the paper was strong on coverage of the prison and criminal justice. Several brilliant managing editors, notably Linda Xiques for 24 years, nurtured the quality, verve and enthusiasm of being on the winning side of great social changes. After each election cycle we liked to post a box score of our endorsements vs. those of the I-J. We batted about .800; the I-J about half that. It wasn’t that everybody in the county clipped out our endorsements

and took them into the polling booth (although many people said they did just that), it was that we were in tune with the new majority in Marin. We also had a hell of a good time. There were after-work parties at the old Sweetwater and at O’Leary’s around the corner from our Mill Valley ofﬁce; annual picnics, a softball team (the Sunstrokes), Paciﬁc Sun T-shirts, all-hands planning sessions, epic Christmas parties, a Paciﬁc Sun Marathon and then 10K races, and now and then we would rent a beach house for a week at Seadrift and discuss the future of the paper, among other things. We even gave out Christmas bonuses, sometimes.

At the victory-turned-sorrow party at a pizza place in Larkspur she bemoaned the fact that she had learned all this stuff about county government and now had no place to use it.

come work for us!” She had never written before, a fact that initially bugged our established writers. But (big surprise) she turned out to be whip-smart and a ﬁne reporter and writer. And in 1976 she had another crack at the Ross Valley supervisorial seat. Pete Arrigoni declined the rematch, Barbara won and has won every election since. At the Sun Barbara won a San Francisco Press Club award for an investigative piece about how a mortgage company was basically stealing the home of an old lady invalid. She won another prize for a moving account of a Vietnam-era peace vigil at Hamilton Air Force Base. Those stories illuminated what underscored the Paciﬁc Sun. Yes, we had parties and good times. Yes, we loved rock music, long hair and loud shirts. Yes, the paper was vibrant, irreverent and fun to read.

environment, women’s rights, the insanity of war, and a more just society. But, you may say, enough about that stuff. What about hot tubs? Isn’t that what Marin is famous for? Enter another famous Sun writer: Cyra McFadden. This story, too, starts with Barbara Boxer. In 1973 we decided to start a San Francisco edition of the Sun. Barbara hauled her desk into my ofﬁce, we cooked up a game plan and began having lunch with, and selling stock to, our list of San Francisco liberals. They ranged all over the lot, from the late Richard Goldman, who founded the Goldman Environmental Prizes, to Willie Brown, who bugged me for years about his missing dividends. There were no dividends because the venture failed after 10 months. But amid the wreckage of the bad idea there was one very good thing: the discovery of Armistead Maupin, who invented and wrote Senate Watergate hearings begin May 18, 1973
Feb 4, 1974 Patty Hearst kidnapped by SLA
a weekly serial, called The Serial, about the linked lives of young San Francisco strivers. When our S.F. edition folded Armistead was devastated; just as he had found his calling it had abruptly vanished. He offered to continue The Serial in a Marin setting. We said no. The success of the formula depended on acute local knowledge and Armistead had to admit he was a stranger to Marin and its ways. After the Sun retreated to Marin, executive editor Don Stanley and I would occasionally note that it would be great to ﬁnd somebody who could do a Marin version of The Serial. Lo and behold, about a year after the death of the San Francisco Serial, we received a marvelous unsolicited manuscript. It was a witty satire of pompous restaurant reviews, in the form of a review of an imaginary sleazy eatery in Marin favored by motorcycle riders. It was very funny.

we might have found our writer for a Marin version of The Serial. The author was somebody named Cyra McFadden, unknown to us. Don contacted the person, who taught at San Francisco State and lived in Mill Valley. Don collected the ﬁve episodes of The Serial that Armistead had written, sent them to Cyra and asked if she would be willing to do something like it for Marin. At ﬁrst she demurred, saying she didn’t believe she could produce a quality installment every week. Don offered to work with her. She pulled it off, with the ﬁrst installment appearing in the issue of Nov. 28, 1975, and carrying the same name as Armistead’s original San Francisco version: The Serial. Cyra’s Serial was brilliant, bolstered by a terriﬁc illustration each week by Tom Cervenak, our art director. It enshrined goony Yuppies as a ﬁxture of Marin. Now the story moves in two directions:

Chronicle columnist Charles McCabe was a friend who would visit his sister in Marin regularly and read her copy of the Sun. McCabe encountered Cyra’s splendid new Serial and remembered that the idea had started in our San Francisco edition. He told Gordon Pates, the Chronicle managing editor, that they should track down the guy who had written the original. They found Armistead and gave him a new lease on life. Indeed, Armistead’s ﬁrst few episodes in the Chronicle in 1976 were essentially the same as those he had written for the Sun in 1974—Mary Ann Singleton looking for love at the Marina Safeway. This serial couldn’t be called The Serial, of course, because the Sun owned that name and was using it for a Marin saga. So Armistead’s work became Tales of the City and the author went on to fame and fortune. Cyra’s splendid Serial expanded into a successful book and then was the basis of a Paramount movie featuring Martin Mull, Tuesday Weld, Sally Kellerman, Bill Macy

and Tom Smothers. The movie bombed. Among those exposed to the book was an NBC television producer in New York who had his own reasons for viewing darkly some lifestyles emerging in the Bay Area. The next thing we knew a “documentary” crew had arrived and in July 1978 NBC churned out a national exposé of Marin’s hedonistic lifestyle. It was titled “I Want It All Now” and featured leaden narration by Edwin Newman. The program took off from Cyra’s satire, using contrived interviews and posed scenes, including one in a hot tub, and sent it out to the world as serious, brow-furrowed reporting. At the Sun we saw that the county had been screwed. There was plenty of strange fringe stuff in Marin to satirize. Hell, Cyra had just done it in the Sun. But there wasn’t really material for a doomsday exposé. A quick check showed that a lot of NBC’s “facts” had been made up. So within a week we put out a special issue titled “How NBC Set It Up.” Barbara Boxer, by then a supervi-

sor, ﬁled a complaint with the National News Council, which sent an investigator to check the facts. In a ﬁrst-ever condemnation of an entire documentary, the National News Council said NBC had run over the truth, notably with the famous hot tub scene. But, alas, Marin and hot tubs remained linked. In 2002, former President George H.W. Bush denounced jailed Taliban associate John Walker Lindh as “some misguided Marin County hot-tubber.” Marin residents raised a ruckus about the linkage. President Bush in turn promised not to use the phrases Marin County and hot tub in the same sentence again. We should be so lucky. < Steve McNamara was owner, editor and publisher of the “Pacific Sun” from 1966 to 2004.

ou hear the buzz about bees disappearing globally but you’re not sure what the big deal is all about. “What’s up with the bees?” you ask your country bumpkin friends. Oh, you ignorant urbanite! I know your type. I am one of you; raised and hardened in New York City. We can handle truck drivers cursing and pushy people glaring at us on mass transit, but we go sprinting and screaming at the sight of a flying insect; especially a fuzzy, buzzing one. Well, it’s time we get over our fear and register for a beekeeping class! Indian Valley’s Organic Farm and Garden, in Novato, will be hosting a full day beekeeping class later this summer or in the fall (date tbd). Together we’ll witness who runs down the hill away from the beehive first. (Warning: Get the hell out of my way or I will sue you.) Serge Labesque, Sonoma beekeeper and teacher at Santa Rosa Junior College has agreed to teach the class to me and my new BFFs (you!). Why do we want to become beekeepers? First, because it’s totally trendy and our friends and family will be impressed. Second, let’s see what was the other reason? Oh, we can make honey. (More showing off to friends and family. Check!) And, last, and, unfortunately, most critical is because we all have a bad case of “Nature Deficit Disorder” so we’re unknowingly
killing bees and other pollinators while we sit around indoors, hiding from nature, watching reality television and checking super-drivel on Twitter. How about we show Mother Earth that we still have a few brain cells left, and we’ve got her back? Here’s a brief recap: Though worldwide bee health has been on the decline since the 1990s, it wasn’t until the fall of 2006 that beekeepers nationwide began noticing millions of bees vanishing from their hives. “Imagine if every one of three cows died. The National Guard would be out,” explains Dennis vanEngelsdorp, research scientist and acting state apiarist for Pennsylvania’s Department of Agriculture. This syndrome, named colony collapse disorder(CCD), is characterized by the disappearance of adult honey bees (Apis mellifera) from the hive, leaving the newborns to fend for themselves. Not a fan of the bee? Why should you care? Well, if you like to eat food, you should be concerned. “While most people recognize the need for plants to be pollinated, most don’t know that it’s diligent native and honey bee populations that are performing the bulk of this process for many of the fruits, nuts and vegetables that we depend upon in our diet,” says Stephen Andrews, soil scientist and environmental studies professor at UC Berkeley.
Besides gathering nectar to produce combination with other stressors, as a key honey, bees pollinate agricultural crops, catalyst,” says Paul Towers, media director home gardens, orchards and wildlife at Pesticide Action Network. “There is no habitat. As they travel from blossom to silver bullet when it comes to protecting blossom in search of nectar, pollen sticks bees, and we should take a comprehensive to their furry body and is transferred to approach to protecting pollinators.

lans for Father’s Day could bypass the restaurant reservation battle altogether if you know where to have a great meal in the great outdoors. Here are two suggestions for nearby places that have barbecue grills as well as pleasant picnic spots. Miwok Park in Novato is blessed with big shade trees, a seasonal creek, courts for bocce and horseshoes, and oldfashioned barbecues. If that isn’t enough, it is also home to the Marin Museum of the American Indian. I would advise getting there either very early for lunch or late afternoon for dinner; it’s open from dawn through dusk, at 2200 Novato Blvd...China Camp State Park is justifiably treasured, a former village where people from Kwantung Province fished with nets for grass shrimp. Remains of the settlement are still there on the bay with its peaceful beach. There are picnic areas (with barbecue grills) overlooking the village, hiking trails, water to play in. Again, timing is everything on weekends, so think ahead. BEER OH BEER Even though it doesn’t take place until the end of the month, Novato’s California Beer Festival at Stafford Lake (June 29, 12:30-5pm) sells a very limited number of tickets that go fast—so be forewarned. With 70 breweries pouring their best, live music and bocce ball on the side, the afternoon is a popular summer event. Besides specialties from selected food trucks, vittles will include for the first time samples from a big BBQ cook-off. Teams of pros and home grillers will turn out chicken, brisket and pork, vying for a $1000 prize. Cost is $40-$65 per person, with proceeds going to the Gen Giammanco Foundation in support of student athletes. Details and tickets: www.californiabeerfestival.com. YES TO PINOT Northern Sonoma stages another weekend for exploring sites usually closed to the public as Passport to Pinot takes place June 8-9, 11am-4pm. Thirty Russian River wineries will welcome visitors with tastes from their best and latest releases; many of them will serve paired summer foods—pizza, fresh salmon, pulled pork. Others have picnic facilities for those who want to bring lunch from home. In an effort to avoid recent problems with crowds of drunken partygoers, buses will be banned by many of the wineries. Admission is $65 for two days, $40 for Sunday only, $20 for designated drivers. Information and tickets: http:// rrvw.org. RESTAURANT NEWS Summer in France is the time for La Fete du Cochon, when the pig in all its glory is celebrated.

›› THE BEAT
Talent deep, mountain high The rock will be rockin’ this month at Mt. Tam Jam... by The Space Cowb oy
any of us have dreamed about a music festival on Mt. Tam for years. A concert has not been held in the 100-year-old Sidney B. Cushing amphitheater since the late 1960s. Now, with the ongoing state budget crisis, the Tamalpais Conservation Club and executive producer Michael Nash have teamed up to present “Mt. Tam Jam: a benefit for the mountain”—a creative response to the state budget shortfall. Proceeds from the event will help fund ranger and maintenance services, trail and bridge restoration and equipment for more expedient search-and-rescue operations. The date of the event is Saturday, June 22, from noon to 7pm, and the lineup has something for everyone. New Orleans funk kings Galactic co-headline along with quirky Sacramento alt-rockers Cake. Also on the bill are roots-blues icon Taj Mahal, Mike Farris and The Roseland Rhythm Revue (Nashville soul powerhouse) and local gunslinger Danny Click and the Hell Yeahs (Americana/roots). Galactic
will play an after-party that night at the Sweetwater Music Hall (sold out). Nash describes it as a celebration of and a benefit for Mt. Tam. “The community response has been amazingly positive,” says Nash. “The mountain is in need of a variety of resources, we could probably do 100 benefits and still not fill the shortfall. We hope everyone comes out to support this event so that we can make it an annual tradition that provides sustainable revenue for the park.” The 4,000 seat venue with panoramic views of the Bay Area will be ringed by food and beverage (beer/wine) booths, a Marin County Bicycle Coalition bike parking lot, ADA seating platform (call 415/451-1912 for information) as well as two premium shaded-seating areas. Attendees are encouraged to take shuttles from Tam High and Manzanita parking lots ($4 round trip) or hike and bike. Parking will be available above the amphitheater for $20 with shuttles to the venue as well. No smoking, no outside alcohol, no dogs, no large coolers (small is OK) and
no folding chairs. Tickets are $50 for adults and $20 for 12 and under. Check out www. tamjam.org for more info and for tickets go to www. tamjam.inticketing.com. It’s Fairfax Festival time again—and that means lots of great music in the clubs downtown and on the festival stages. The Saturday, June 8, mainstage lineup kicks it off with Fenton Coolfoot at noon, Ring of Fire at 1:30pm, The Purple Band (Tom Finch and Co.) at 3pm and Elephant Listening Project at 4:30pm. The Sunday lineup is equally hot: Staggerwing at noon, the Mad Hannan Band at 1:15pm, Tommy Odetto & Friends at 2:30pm and New Monsoon closing it out at 4pm. Peri’s Bar hosts five bands on Saturday: Danny Montana, the Gravel Spreaders, Jay Bonet, Beso Negro (9pm) and ELP w/ members of the

Mo’fessionals (10:30pm). 19 Broadway will host a funk/hip-hop party Saturday, June 8, featuring Cambo and Sol Doc among others. Huge congratulations to the one and only Bonnie Hayes, who has been offered the chair of the songwriting department at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Although we are sad to see her move away temporarily, she will now be near her talented daughter Lily, who begins classes there this fall... Welcome home to Monophonics, who capped off a six-week U.S./European tour with a one-off show in Medellin, Colombia, sponsored by Levi Strauss... Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band will play their first East Coast shows this week at Sullivan Hall (June 4, 5, 6) and on the Infinity Yacht Cruise June 7... The talented James Nash (the Waybacks) will play Marin twice this month: at Fairfax Festival’s Eco-stage on June 8 at 2:30pm and appearing at 142 Throckmorton with Ernest “Boom” Carter (drums), Bobby Vega (bass) and more... Fenix Supper Club on Fourth Street in San Rafael continues to bring in top-notch music every week. One look at their website and you will agree... Two Sunday shows at Rancho Nicasio stand out this month: Sunday, June 9, at 5pm— Wendy deWitt’s “Piano Party” featuring Austin deLone (Elvis Costello/Fabulous Thunderbirds); and Sunday, June 16—the Elvin Bishop Band featuring Ruthie Foster on Father’s Day (4pm). If you haven’t seen the amazingly talented Matt Jaffe & the Distractions, whose new album was produced by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads, you have two chances this month: Sunday, June 9, on the Redwood Stage of the Novato Festival of Art, Wine and Music (10am) and Thursday, June 27, at 142 Throckmorton Theater (8pm). We would like to send out healing thoughts and prayers to longtime Bolinas keyboardist Jim Vest who began chemotherapy this week. < Got a hot tip for The Beat?

This movie wouldn’t hurt a fly... “What if someone really good made a horror picture?” HITCHCOCK is a fun if all-too-genial account of the director at a landmark point in his career, when he chucked reputation and fortune to make a nasty little film about a serial killer. Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, who certainly could Hopkins, the spitting image of Winston Churchill, in ‘Hitchcock.’ have given voice to the couple’s dark hinterlands if asked, are handicapped by a script that, while true to the facts of Psycho’s production, is more interested in the couple’s cuddliness. But Hopkins is a perfect mimic of the man, if not his likeness, and Mirren as Alma Reville gives flashes of that cold glimmer Detective Tennison might’ve shown had she discovered her husband’s yen for human taxidermy. The drama is all there: As Hitch fights the studio and Shurlock Office censors who refuse to sign onto such lurid material, he and Alma tap personal bank accounts and mortgage Bel Air manse to complete their doubtful little grindhouse pic with a shower scene. Meanwhile Hitch, an awful womanizer, begins to doubt Alma’s constancy. Asked once if Psycho was a lesser film for breaking all his own standards for good storytelling, Hitchcock replied, “I quite agree. I made a fortune.” Scarlett Johansson costars as Janet Leigh, with appearances by Tony, Vera, Lew, Saul, Bernie, and Ed Gein. —Richard Gould country and rock. 7pm. No cover, dinner encouraged.

My girlfriend and I love each other, but we feel we’re becoming numb to hearing it from each other. We’ve been together three years, so I assume that time is what’s put a damper on the “three little words.” I suggested that when we are about to say “I love you,” we come up with something more personal and meaningful. This, sadly, was difficult and lasted about a day. Now we’re back to expressing affection the rote way. Yes, we could have a bigger problem, but beneath this is a bigger worry—that the relationship will get old, too. —Same-Old, Same-Old
The pressure to be original in love can be pretty trying. Imagine Shakespeare tentatively mumbling to a woman, “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” and hearing back, “Ugh, Will...for the third time this week?” Likewise, the first time you heard “I love you” from your girlfriend, you probably thought, “Wow, she loves me! Hot damn!” But once a relationship gets going, sometimes “I love you!” wells up from the bottom of the heart and sometimes from the need to say something a little more feel-good than “Gotta get you off the phone so I can clean up this cat vomit.” Sometimes, one partner is needy and says it constantly so they can hear it back constantly. (If not for somebody being there in their life to respond, they’d be standing for days on end yelling it into the Grand Canyon.) So, yes, it’s probably time for a little rationing of “I love you” if it’s become shorthand for everything short of “pass the salt.” But there’s actually research by Dr. Sara Algoe and others showing that expressions of appreciation seem to keep a relationship alive, keeping partners from taking each other for granted and feeling taken for granted. This doesn’t necessarily require blithering on in detail about your partner’s great qualities, especially not when you both know what you’re really saying with a laughing “I love you!” is “You are simply the greatest for coming over and resting your boobs on my head while I’m stuck writing these boring reports.” Of course, one of the best ways to make “I love you” more meaningful is by showing it—ideally, at least once a day—just by thinking about what would make each other happier and less stressed and doing it. This could involve small kindnesses like getting up to refill your girlfriend’s drink when you’re eating dinner or somewhat bigger (and ickier) kindnesses like telling her to stay put while you clean up after her puking cat. Any guy can go through the romantic motions—say “I love you” on Valentine’s Day with $50 worth of chocolate truffles and a suspiciously funerary flower arrangement—but it takes a truly loving guy to say it on a random Tuesday with a rag full of cat vomit.
Is there a nice way to tell your girlfriend that you really don’t like what she wears to come hang out with your friends? My girlfriend can look so cute in certain outfits, but whenever we’re seeing my friends, it seems she dresses more conservatively, and often, she really looks kind of frumpy. I’m not looking for her to look like a stripper. I just want her to look as good as she does when she’s out with her friends or we’re out together. —Holding Back
A woman can go a little too far in trying to avoid crossing the border from sexy to slutty—all the way over to “sturdy Amish woman about to churn butter.” Chances are, your girlfriend thinks she’s protecting you—keeping you from looking bad in the eyes of your friends or from worrying that she’s covertly shopping for your replacement. Unfortunately, women don’t always understand the workings of competition between men. Basically, it’s good to get the girl. It’s even better if your guy friends and any passing male strangers hate you a little for it. To get your girlfriend to dress a little more Mad Men than Ma from Little House on the Prairie, pose a question to her with a compliment folded in: “Hey, can I ask you something? You dress so cute when it’s just us hanging out. It seems like you feel the need to dress more conservatively when we’re out with my friends.” Explain that she really doesn’t have to do that, and add, “I just want everyone to see how gorgeous you are.” The compliment will rise to the top, and she should get the message: You aren’t asking her to to wear something that will have drunks trying to slip dollar bills in her bra, just something more in keeping with a night likelier to end in a game of poker than a plague of prairie locusts. < © Amy Alkon, all rights reserved. www.advicegoddess.com.
