New York Times

The Bobs get quoted in the NYT

The seasonal Santa Ana winds, which fan the devastating fires that periodically engulf parts of Southern California, appear throughout the imaginative literature of the region. In novels, essays, short stories and rock lyrics, the dry, hot Santa Ana often symbolizes an unnamable menace lying just beneath the sun-shot surface of California life. Some examples follow.

From the lyrics to "Santa Ana Woman," by the Bobs

The next thing I knew

there was a pain in my head

like my sinuses were cracking.

The Santa Ana winds had come back

and the whole city of L.A.

was acting like it had PMS.
