Watch the documentaryPlagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea (Links to an external site.) by John Waters here. John Waters is an outspoken artist who continues to push the subversive envelope of American culture, especially as it pertains to race relations [in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland]. The Salton Sea is a fascinating example of the failures of modernist water planning, human outcasts, reinforced isolating poverty, environmental devastation, public heath crises, political powerlessness, and uncertain futures. Or, in other terms - a place diametrically opposed to Silicon Valley's elite 'California'.
