Federal Government Shutdown: Will You Be Kicked Off Ocean Beach?

With the specter of a federal shutdown looming tomorrow, San Franciscans have reason to worry. If our government ceases operating and everyone heads to the beach — will we be able to head to the beach?

Ocean Beach, after all, is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and is federal land. Does that make freezing one's ass off while pretending to enjoy the surf and sun suddenly verboten?

“We actually don't have those details yet,” admitted Alexandra Picavet, the spokeswoman for the GGNRA. “I do know we still hold out hope Congress can avoid a government shutdown. Our No. 1 goal will be to protect the people and resources entrusted to us.”
