She surfs on
Latest development in the Encinitas surfing Madonna saga. As you'll recall, a mosaic of the Virgen de Guadelupe on a surfboard with the caption "Save the Ocean" appeared nearly miraculously under a railroad bridge in Encinitas on Good Friday/Earth Day. (I went on pilgrimage to see her last month.) She was taken down by the city council as graffiti shortly after that, and, I gather, has not yet found a home. But she's back, redeeming an often lampooned statue in neighboring Cardiff.
