As an old newspaperman living in a digital age, I am often asked if print will survive. My answer is yes, and for a very important reason: You can't wrap fish in a website. Besides, what are you supposed to do, housebreak your dog on an iPad?

Coronado, your beaches, your hotel, your bridge, your people and your shops have won me over. Every holiday season, I'll be back to see the Christmas parade, drink hot chocolate from 1134, and take advantage of holiday-inspired free parking meters.
