Thursday, January 10, 2002
Follow Up: Do you know anyone who works for the government?
Retired School Cafeteria Worker/Seaside
A: When they sent us to the [World War II internment] camps. First we were sent to the Rodeo Grounds in Salinas. Then to Poston, Arizona. We were there for a year. Then we went to Tule Lake, California for two years. I was eight or nine. We had to leave everything.
Friends with Any Feds? Not right now.
A: When a private businessperson goes into business, in Carmel specifically, the city gives you a license. You go to move your location and you can''t take your license. It stays with the landlord. You have to either buy someone else''s license or that''s all.
Bureaucrats in the Family? I have a brother who works for the state. He''s a judge in Los Angeles.
A: I did six years in the Marines. I don''t have anything bad to say about the Marine Corps. But I got a DUI last week and it''s not the aggressiveness of the police, it''s their cockiness.
Got Comrades? My father has been in the Army for 20 years. A lot of my friends are still in the Marines.
