Most people in America are from somewhere else, said Alexis de Toqueville in his review of America. And that is true even for Malibu. The vast majority of Malibu residents were born somewhere else, including the New York-raised publisher of the Malibu Times, and rather than belittle those Malibu residents, we appreciate them.
