Aside from the fact that I have had a relative living there recently, what comes to mind most when *I* hear the name 'Modesto' is Scott Peterson.
I lived in Tracy when I was considering the job in Modesto. Basically it was meth from Fresno and Ecstasy and Acid from San Fransisco with different strains of Marijuana trading places from north to south. I agree 100% about prohibition David. Looking back now, I'm so glad I never took that job.
well I haven't witnessed any more trafficking here any more than other valley cities...But prohibition invites crime anyway.
I heard that about Modesto and Tracy. I think one reason Meth may have been big there is the same reason it was big where I used to live in NE Oregon - Farms and easy access to anhydrous ammonia along
lol, no. Was not a good thing. About 12 years ago, or so, I almost took a job with Modesto PD, Narcotics, as Modesto was the drug trafficking capitol of N. California. ;P
I'm surpriesed folks know my town lol...yeah cruising is prohibited I got a traffic ticket for that...;) and what is Modesto known for Bryanderthal? lol We are the CA monopoly on car theft (2010 estiment) or was it a good thing? we have good wine? ;)
South Santa Clara County Announcement: If you're within striking distance of Morgan Hill or Gilroy, please consider...
Morgan Hill has a Meetup.com group for freethinkers, atheists, etc. that started last year and is picking up good steam. See http://www.meetup.com/South-County-Freethinkers/
There is also a Yahoo! group for general discussion of local atheist-related topics. Visit groups.yahoo.com and search for South_Santa_Clara_County_Atheists.
I just looked to see if there were any local atheist meetings and signed up for newsletters from the San Francisco and Oakland Atheist groups. I also signed up for meetup.com where SFO, OAK, and other Atheist groups list meetings
Modesto used to be packed with people cruising in the '70's. After Hot August nights started getting popular most towns cracked down on cruising. Napa put an end to cruising after a guy blew up his clutch at a light to light drag race in town. The clutch flew apart and injured a few people standing on the sidewalk.
Growing up on the wild side of the Bay Area, we knew Modesto for a different reason, David. ;)
Modesto (y'know "american Graffiti") or "the city Lucas is from".
