I really don't have a problem with the tourism here; small businesses are booming, service industry folk are making bank. I can dig it. However, I can't dig a Californian tourist standing on my porch, yammering on a cell phone, with no regard to private property. No, it's not ok to stand on the 'cool old porch' and fiddle with my mailbox. This is not Disney Land. This is a real city with real houses that people actually live in. Get off my porch!
