south bay!

i always had this uneasy fear of the east bay with all the crime that makes it to the news...i think oakland especially

i like berkeley a lot but there are some rough areas which people seem to keep stumbling into

in the south bay, the most major city, san jose, is actually quite safe for what is considered a major american city...but that is not always saying much since like all large cities, the crime and type of crimes committed there make for a place which is less than ideal to raise kids

luckily, i was far enough away from san jose so i occassionaly got to go there and stayed only in the day and had little or no reason to go downtown

btw...how is oakland these days and has major jerry brown done a good job?
