BROWNSVILLE LOSES OVER CAMERON COUNTY INACTION

This  time of year Brownsville hotels could be  full with Spring Breakers, Mexican Nationals, and Winter Texans accessing Boca Chica's nude beach.  My regular readers know I previously proposed making the area around the mouth of the river a clothing optional beach.

Americans travel in the 10's of thousands all over the world in search of nude beaches.  Spain is a major destination for the pleasure of vacationing on a nude beach.  Millions of US dollars flow out of the US over the lack or beautiful nude beaches in the US.

It is sad the prude attitude of our county leaders has cost Brownsville a small fortune in hotel profits, tax revenues, airport revenues, and car rentals.

Some day this city and county will be lead by people with a vision.  Brownsville will never move beyond being more than a border wasteland, until its leaders enter the 21st  century.

The other day I had to go to McAllen's airport.  I was blown away to learn McAllen has a major bookstore and Brownsville is without a bookstore, period.  Sorry small Christan bookstores are not community book stores.  I guess when you live in a city without so much as a book store it is asking far too much for a nude beach where intelligent uninhibited people can congregate and discuss the issues of the day.

Nude beach? Who cares? But I wouldn't encourage anybody to get into the water anywhere near the mouth of the river. Especially after an upstream rain. The e-coli count can be really high and god knows what else is washing out with the river. But Boca Chica is the best beach in Texas. In fact, when I think about it, nobody should go on Boca Chica Beach at all. Every week or so I'll check it out and let everyone know when it's safe.

Anything which can bring more tax dollars and profits into Brownsvills is a matter of public concern.

there is also the issue of providing non-prudes a place to get together and enjoy the sun and absorb lots of vitamen D

By who cares I meant big deal if there is a nude beach, who cares if people have cloths on or not. Of course, there is a nude section on the Island. Last time I drove through there my eyes hurt for a week (sorry, I had to say it). However, I don't think poisoning people with bacteria is going to do much for the tourist trade.

what most people do not realize about the unofficial nude beach on SPI (10 miles pass access 6) nealy all of the visitors are older people - it is certainly not a place where young people go - the funny thing is - the young people of the LRGV seem to have a very unhealthy attitude towards nudity while the older people (50 and older) are very comfortable with it
