We were down at Assateague over the weekend and went up to the OC Boardwalk on Saturday afternoon for a couple of hours - Thrasher's Fries and Fisher's Caramel Popcorn - old people food for those reminiscing about their long ago youth. The demographics of the crowd has definitely changed (predominately Latino and Black) and reading some of the local papers, it appears that the crime rate has seen a substantial jump directly related to that change - meaning, the perps involved in the recent Boardwalk problems were all early 20s Blacks and the same demographic has been heavily involved in the uptick in carjackings down there. I mean no disrespect or racism but they published the bad guys' mugshots and the pictures tell the tale. That bad behavior just perpetuates the stereotype and does no one any good.

My belief and hope is that this is due to the circumstances. Most of the lower end hotels are less than $100/night and aren't enforcing the usual 3 night minimum. For now, I'm clinging on to that. Compared to last year, the crowds are pretty light particularly during the week.

OK, I'll give you bono fide antique, but to still be around at 142 has to be some kind of a record!!!!

Senior (~18) in 1896.

I was a Senior in 1976 and pissed that Mom made me stay home from the Fireman's Convention until Sunday for graduation. Back then, the locals looked to the Fireman to push out the Seniors, which was pretty interesting, since we weren't to most quiet of crews!!!

Eons ago, I went there for senior week and the environment was neither hostile nor unsafe. Quite the opposite. OC gov and PD did a great job balancing senior week antics while maintaining a family friendly environment. There was VERY minimal violence. It looks like that is no longer true. Shame.

The wife and I were planning on camping near Assateague and probably hitting OC for Thrashers, boardwalk, and me telling lies about how cool I was in high school. Maybe we will not be there not after dark.

Assateague was nice early this morning, drove back to Bethany through OC, wasn't anything going on at 10AM.

DE has 64 hospitalized with COV-19, 5 fewer then last week (per WBOC). But they are closing the bars down an some beaches for the 4th. Just get your employees back an have to lay them off again. What do you guys think, 60% of small businesses don't make it?

I'm going to guess you and your buddies didn't carry your white privilege with you everywhere you went and try to assert it every chance you got.
