Here is a small sampling of the business world of Quartzsite in January:
And last on today's photo tour (but definitional not least) is one of the most famous entrepreneurs in Quartzsite, Paul Winer, the proprietor of Q's used book store called "Readers Oasis Books." He is also known (for some reason that will soon become apparent) as The Naked Bookseller. No, there is nothing in back except a string, hidden where all good thong strings go. Yes, that is all he wears unless it is cold, when he'll add a shirt. Yes, you can see through the thong -- it is crocheted with lots of open spaces. No, John didn't think through the consequences of letting a blogger take this photo!
I think Paul's hat is a nice concession to the dangers of repeated exposure to solar radiation, don't you?
