In regards to “Hollister Co. Shirts Endorse Earthquakes, Mediocrity” (Daily Nexus, Oct. 15, 2003), Drew Mackie should realize that the Hollister Co. sucks, but I hope someone has told him that the company and its surf image is based on the famed Hollister Ranch, which is about 30 miles north of here. It was a private ranch with during the ’60s with a plethora of good surf breaks and was only surfed by the Santa Barbara Surf Club because it had an agreement with “Doc” Hollister. It’s not based on your little town, so stop whining.
