If Richard Nixon hated it, it must be fun: A Vanity Fair reporter was arrested trying to sneak into the Bohemian Grove, a secret camp for the rich and powerful outside San Francisco.
There are a lot of institutions out there keeping the white man down these days, so politicians like Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon would retreat to this summer camp for grown-ups, which was founded in 1872.
