Did you know that the OB Rag has a whole bevy of regular / irregular columnists?  We do, and you gotta check them out!

They are plentiful – and you can see them for yourself by going to the Navigation Bar just below our masthead and clicking on either “COLUMNS” or go to the “OCEAN BEACH” and clicking on that for a list of OB columnists.

Here they are – along with a very short bio and their avatar:

“From the Soul” by Ernie McCray

I was raised in a loving and alive home, in a black neighborhood filled with colorful characters in Tucson, Arizona. Such an environment gave me a hint that life has to be grabbed by the tail as tight as a pimple on a mosquito’s butt. With no BS and a whole lot of love. So, from those days to now I get up every morning set on making the world a better place. On my good foot*, and I hope my writing reflects that.

“Anna’s Video Pick” by Anna Daniels

I left a moribund Western Pennsylvania mill town the year that Richard M. Nixon was not impeached for crimes against the American people, and set off in search of truth, beauty, justice and a beat I could dance to.

Here I am.

High school dropout who decided to show the educational community what learning is all about. If it’s the status quo something’s wrong with it and I’ll scratch the itch!

“Ask an OB Convert” by OB Convert

It is said that converts to a religion can be more zealous than those born into a religion. Perhaps the same applies to people who did not get to grow up in Ocean Beach but have moved here and won’t go away. I may not be a native OBecian but I sure think OB is fantastic and it isn’t just the ocean, good bars and dog beach. It’s the OB attitude that makes everything else so good.
