Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood II

Another musing on the topic of gross misunderstandings.
I think that, if, as a nation, we are going to argue and debate over whether or not to amend the constitution in order to define marriage as the union of one man with one woman, we need to address the definition of beach.
On Cape Cod a beach has sand on it. In fact that's usually the way one recognizes a beach. A person new to town turns down Falmouth Heights Road, makes a left at the stop sign, sees the sand meeting the water and says to themselves, "look, there's the beach."
In Maine "beach" is a relative term. One they use mainly because tourists might be less lured to a place called endlessly rocky coastline.
