  1. What the hell has happened to the Peninsula? I moved away nine years ago and I never remember it being this bad.

  2. As we moved away from military and more toward tourism the place is getting dirty. Gangs no longer stay at the PJs or the Alisal barrio, they look for opportunity anywhere they can. Homeless addicts that live for the next hit will take anything that is not nailed down.

    Just need to be more aware. Don’t leave alone from the clubs at night. Stay off the rec trail at night. Don’t shop or patronize businesses the either hire gang bangers or cater to them.

    Don’t give money to vagrants on corners. Donate to a shelter.

    Lock your doors. Take the bicycles inside. Keep valuables out of sight in your car

    Welcome to the new world.
