O.K. Paul P., I don't know who you are but here are some thoughts I had when I read the aricle:
I wonder what Emmet Berg means by "some popular pastimes aren't even legal" in the opening trailer. I wonder what prompted the article and what is meant by 'benign anarchy.'
Overall, I am not thrilled to see an aspiring journalist practicing the art of selective misinformation with my favorite place.
The article is misleading in two ways: First because the word choices, especially in the beginning, imply lawlessness and misdoings in connection with the springs and with Mike Castro. Second, and more directly, the article fails to mention that there is public access around the ranch, as stated by Laughing Bear, but that parking there requires an adventure pass. Thus, the article makes it sound as though Mike charges for something that is otherwise free, when it is not free to begin with.
I guess it is good that the article makes the place sound so dangerous and creepy, so that hordes of new people won't come check the place out after reading about it. Unfortunately, people attracted to the idea of lawlessness may be that much more intrigued.
I guess Emmet has a hard time deciding. At one place in the aricle the bathers are "mostly unadorned," but later he says that many wear swimsuits. "Mostly" and "many" both imply majorities, so are the majority clothed or not?
Too bad Emmet didn't actually talk to many people who frequent DCHS, or there would have been info on the new group that is forming. He could have had such fun with innuendo about our evolving mission statement, etiquette "rules," and attempts to name ourselves.
