Saturdays start slow. Even dogs sleep in.

On the river, Captains push their speed boats hard, taking two, three, four paying customers further up the river where dorados are waiting to be reeled in.

On the pier this weekend there is a photo shoot in progress with three young girls dancing, modeling swimsuits, posing for photos and getting direction from an old bald impressario wearing sunglasses. When they change costumes a matronly attendant holds up a coat as a changing room.

Clowning around, the boss stands on the top of one of the benches and dances while the film crew snaps shots and gives him appreciation.

The girls love it.

I don’t know what they are trying to sell, but youth and sex sells most anything.

Behind the news is always old men with money and connections.
