Five Memorable Swimming Pool Scenes

Earlier today, the mayor unveiled a budget proposal that would close down eight of the city's pools, no doubt a loss to the community. Pools are an essential part of summertime and, more importantly, a part of growing up.

Forget fending off heat stroke and learning a life-saving skill. Chlorine-swollen eyes, awkward changing-room situations and rumors that the water will turn red if you pee in it are what summertime is all about. Add in a few hot lifeguards, a smattering of june bugs in your hair and an unidentifiable blob of flotsam floating by, and you've got a an American summer experience that rivals watching fireworks on the Fourth of July.
