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.
