Hamptons Balkanization '04

Though last summer's proposal by a group of wealthy waterfront Hamptons homeowners to secede and form a new town called Dunehampton died a merciful death, the troops are back this summer with revised borders, a revised pansy-ass name ("Southampton Beach")?and a raft of competitors! Seems the hamlet of Sagaponack has also applied for incorporation, and residents of Bridgehampton are also pursuing self-governance. "It looks like they?re suggesting a League of Nations that guarantees their own existence," notes baffled Southampton town supervisor Patrick Heaney. Surely a summer of tribal strife by the shore lies ahead. Quick, someone tell Kofi Anan there are plenty of summer rentals still available.
