Contrast

I'm lucky enough to be staying in a beautiful boutique hotel overlooking the ocean in La Jolla today.

My delicious breakfast of eggs, coffee and freshly squeezed juice was enhanced by the incredible view ... and three angry Jews discussing the nuclear obliteration of Iran.

"The Jews and the Persians go way back", stated one of the guys in his incredibly loud baritone. So although I learned that the native people of Israel and Iran have a common bond stretching back 3,000 years, I was left in no uncertain terms that this breakfast cabal wanted nothing less than the total destruction of "those fucking pricks".

Slightly scared, I went back to staring out to the Pacific and enjoying my first cup of the day.
