From Mike O'Hare, after visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium over the weekend:

Cannery Row has become at least thirty percent more schlocky and touristy over the last decade, but this is not necessarily a bad thing: I loved Coney Island back in the day and there's a place in the world for penny-squashing machines.

What with inflation and all, shouldn't these now be quarter squashing machines?
