Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Report From Occupied America—The Fall of Salinas
I have lived in Salinas my entire life. Salinas used to be an American city, now it is a foreign country.
Gang bangers openly stare down people from their vehicles while their rap and hip-hop trash blares from their stereos.
Mayor Anna Caballero [e-mail her] has governed passively, letting law-breakers have their way. Until society can communicate positive messages in one language, silence would be better.
When my daughter goes to college, I'll leave Salinas and never return.
The face of Monterey County is changing.
I wonder how many notice.
