Interviewer: All right, we’re here with Tom, another shy guy, from Long Beach. Tom, what community are you from?

Tom: In Long Beach, South of Conant.

Interviewer: The south of Conant community.

Tom: And I’ve been there my entire life.

Interviewer: All 22 years?

Tom: A little more than that. I’m the most unique Southern Californian you’re ever going to run across.

Interviewer: Because you’ve lived there the whole time?

Tom: Yeah. Born in Long Beach, raised in Long Beach, educated in Long Beach. I’ve moved once in my entire life, one mile from where I grew up in Long Beach, and they’re both South of Conant. And I’m 55. And I’ve worked downtown for 10 years.

Interviewer: Then you have a lot to say about why South of Conant, your area, is the best place to live in all the United States. Tell people what that is.

Tom: It’s reminiscent of Iowa by the Sea, and nobody has a clue what I’m talking about.

Interviewer: I know what that is.

Tom: Very good!

Interviewer: I know what “”Iowa by the Sea”” means. Tell them what it means.

Tom: It’s middle America, because they came to the West Coast with the Iowa farmers back in the ’20s and ’30s. It’s a bedroom community. We know our neighbors. I know everybody on the block. You can go up to a door and say “”Hi”” to somebody and they won’t bite your head off. Everybody’s friendly and we like each other.

Interviewer: Iowa by the Sea. You can look that up in Wikipedia, by the way. It’s just a fascinating story about why they called the area “”Iowa by the Sea.””

Tom: I used to go to Recreation Park for the Iowa by the Sea picnics. They’ve been going on for almost 85 years.

Interviewer: You’ve been going there for how long?

Tom: That was a good whack. I’m not quite as old as you are.

Interviewer: Tom, taking a shot at the host. That’s not going to do you good. What else do you have to say about Long Beach in general, Tom?

Tom: It’s eclectic, it’s fun. You can do anything you want in Long Beach. You’ve got everything.

Interviewer: Anything?

Tom: Anything.

Interviewer: Oh my God.

Tom: McDonnell’s a buddy of mine. You know, the police chief.

Interviewer: If I get in trouble because I do anything?

Tom: Don’t say you knew me, though.

Interviewer: OK. You heard it here first, folks. I’m not going to get in trouble. Chief McDonnell, I swear I didn’t do it.

Tom: You’ve got to be shy to live in the city. Just like me and What’s-His-Name over here.

Interviewer: Thanks, I really appreciate that, Tom. Tom, it was more than a pleasure speaking with you. Thanks for sharing.

Tom: Absolutely. Good luck.
