Hannibal, 1977. He started sympathizing with drug dealers and heroin addicts.

Bob Hannibal was one of the good guys. Or so he thought.

Hannibal's daily efforts to convince people he wasn’t a cop, along with all the dope smoking and the ten different identities he developed as covers, inevitably led to a slippage in his real identity; he became unstuck from himself. Adding to his growing sense of unreality was something that hurt him deeply: "People never recognized me. I busted the same whore three times, and she never remembered me."

Juan Delgadillo: "You’re going to sweat. So before you come here, shower. Deodorize. If you’ve been on the construction site all day, wear a clean shirt.”

One step at a time

Precisely because dancing “is such an intimate sport,” says Juan, "it’s very easy that a student can become infatuated. Students bring you cookies, cakes, pies. They bring you lunch from Burger King. You touch the students, you touch them in their heart, and it’s so easy for an instructor to break a student s heart."

Paraquat is cheaper — even though it costs fifty dollars a gallon — than having a crew dig out the weeds with a hoe.

Death of a growing season

One year, Cacho grew cucumbers year round, harvesting a spring, a summer, and a winter crop, and lost several hundred thousand. The market was low that year. To hedge his bets, he now harvests cucumbers in the spring and fall, along with a little cabbage, and celery in the winter.

Jerry Gross with Stan Musial, St. Louis, 1960. By the time he came to San Diego, Gross had been a broadcaster in two World Series.

Jerry Gross bounces back

Another factor leading to Gross’s termination as Channel 8 sports director was his feud with Padres president Buzzie Bavasi, who ran the team under two succeeding owners (C. Arnholt Smith and Ray Kroc) between 1969 and 1977. Gross had worked for Bavasi beginning in 1969, when he was hired as the announcer for the newly enfranchised San Diego Padres.

Duff Brenna's Book of Mamie won the 1988 Associated Writing Programs prize for best novel of the year. Brenna admits reading everything that crosses his path. However, there are classics he returns to often: Rolvaag's Giants in the Earth; Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. War and Peace; Conrad’s Lord Jim. "I have absolute faith in these geniuses that keep getting read and reread." Brenna says.

“Even when he gets arrested, the cops are laughing,” observes R.T. Duryea, Du-Ray, the owner of the surf shop.

No man is an island (with the possible exception of Don Zub.)

He manages to keep three or four mostly inoperable cars stashed on the island’s streets and alleys without getting them towed more than once every couple of months. Nearly every bike on the island is his to borrow, sometimes even with the owner’s permission, though he still owes $30 to a friend’s brother for throwing his beach cruiser off a high span of the Coronado Bridge. “I crashed on that bike, and it made me mad.”

"They used to call me ‘Fast Eyes’ If somebody shot a .38, I could actually follow the bullet all the way to the target."

One tough cop

“These people can be violent upon you. Most of the fights I’ve had were in defense of someone else. Like, the last memorable one I had at the 3500 block of National Avenue in 1962. Took on a whole family. Six of ’em, by myself. Put ’em in the hospital."
