1965, Long Beach, California, and Farmington, New Mexico
Escorted by Mormon leaders, our Explorer Scout troop travels to Southern California. Words fail me the next Sunday when I try to describe what we saw on the beach. I cup my hands to indicate breasts, tanned breasts, enormous breasts barely restrained by tiny scraps of cloth. My Sunday school classmates erupt. The teacher struggles to restore order, to banish the breasts.
