Snoopin' Around

ByHelga Gendell

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Snoopin’ Around offers an historical perspective of the beginning of a weekly newspaper in the rapidly developing Marina del Rey, and the impact of a growing LAX in the early 1970s. Newspaper founder and publisher David Asper Johnson, brilliant, personable, and with a wry wit, captures the flavor of business, political and social issues with an unparalleled astuteness. An enlightening and informative story of the beginning years of Marina del Rey told through Dave’s boundless enthusiasm as he begins his adventures in the first issue of The Argonaut newspaper (Nov. 25, 1971). Through a careful selection of articles, Helga Gendell tells the story of Dave’s progress — running his paper from the back of his old Karmann Ghia, when the Marina was a hot place for singles — following the progress of changes in the Marina over the years. For additional spice, cartoons drawn 40 years ago specifically for The Argonaut, and still as humorous today, are included.
