One of my Latino acquaintances actually told me that story that the Bush family lived in that area. There’s a reason why a lot of Amazon and Ebay-concentrated business moving there is because of the low tax rates. It’s a well-known myth that despite the gangbanger image of the city, it is mostly a warehouse city.
On one of the football bulletin boards that I frequent, someone from the Seattle area asked for recommendations as to where to stay on a visit to Southern California. I recommended a community with good freeway connections, less than an hour from downtown LA, the beaches of Orange County, and LAX. Although centrally located in a big metropolitan area, the community remains a charming and quaint little town which even has its own college, with a state university only about a mile outside the city limits. The name of this community? Compton.
