    What draws America-hating leftists to Arcata? The natural beauty? The small town parks filled with redwoods? Or is it the distinct smell of simmering anger from young people too ignorant and inexperienced to know what the nation is all about?

    From the overpriced thrift stores stuffed with yuppie’s discarded junk to the grow stores staffed by unwashed stoners, Arcata has the hippie ambience for you!

    Recreation? We have it in spades! (oh, sorry, is that not PC – I apologize – should I resign my position?) From the sneaker wave-filled beaches to the plaza swirling with dope smoke, from the communist diploma-mill university to the $10 bunches of organic kale at the farmer’s market, we have plenty to do on the weekends and beyond!

    Enjoy your leisure time dodging the homeless panhandlers downtown or scurrying away from the drug addicts in the marsh, there is an activity for anyone in Arcata! Just bring lots of liquid hand sanitizer. And a handghun.

    Entertainment? You betcha! (did that sound too Midwesty?) Bar fights on the plaza! Police raids on grow houses in the suburbs! Bad microbrews and lots of drugs! And that’s just the university professors! Student enjoy skipping classes and running up federal loans!

    Plenty to see and experience in the Maoist’s paradise – the People’s Republic of Arcata!

    (sorry there’s no Bigfoot – we wish there were)
