Meanwhile in San Bernardino...

New, 4 comments

San Bernardino was once a booming Cold War city, fueled by Norton Air Force Base, the Santa Fe Railroad maintenance yard, and the nearby Kaiser Steel mill, but now all of that is gone, the city's bankrupt, and poverty and crime rates have shot up. KPCC, however, has found the San Berdoo diehards who refuse to leave, like this young transit agency clerk: "Our city is a great transportation hub, let's build off of that … We got a lot of youth, they're hungry, they want to make the city great — let's work off of that. Let's get the energy, let's try to focus that." [SCPR, image via Wikipedia]
