Grup City – Coto de Caza
......Of Peter Pan, Grups and Coto d Caza
the Coto de Caza board of directors controlled by Varo/Mezger/Hill continue to
handle public safety as a Tar Baby, it is only appropriate to consider a tag
line for Coto de Caza once Varo/Mezger/Hill accomplish their goal of turning
Coto into a City. The one that best
describes the community is Grup City:
Grup is, of course, someone who has failed to grow up. Intentionally. It is
someone who has not just failed to put away childish things, but is happily
tossing them around. Similar to the images conveyed by Michael Jackson’s Peter
Pan, and perhaps to make it more
appealing to the masses, New York magazine writer Adam Sternbergh came up with
the term “Grup”: In
Sternbergh’s words, a Grup “….
owns eleven pairs of sneakers, hasn’t worn anything but jeans in a year, and
won’t shut up about the latest Death Cab for Cutie CD. But he is no kid. He is
among the ascendant breed of grown-up who has redefined adulthood as we once
knew it and killed off the generation gap”
is taken from the Star Trek episode in which Captain Kirk and the crew land on a
planet populated and run by children, without adults. The children call the crew
“Grups”, a shortening of “grown-ups”. All the grown-ups have died from a
virus that kills adults and also slows the ageing process.
similar virus is now affecting Coto de Caza. You need only look around you.
Here’s a really bad case of Gruppery: First the infamous Scott
Dunlop’s Orange County Desperate Housewives, then an assault with a deadly
weapon, followed by the illegal pairwise bicycle riding in rush hour traffic,
and the number of CHP citations issued to those aged 50 years and older being
the same as the ones issued to kids 17 years and younger.
Since by definition, Grups,
are those 40-year-olds and under
who are pulling off not growing up, and could be the first generation in America
to not be forced into adulthood, seems like Coto de Caza’s fascination with
youth is pushing the age limit to 50 years+!
challenge CotoBuzz readers to come up with a better suited name for the City of
Coto than Coto the Caza, The Grup City!
