I completely agree with you-William---cardinal is a lib apologist. Years ago the Alameda Fair made the MISTAKE of dedicating each day to a county city. You can imagine what happened when "Oakland" day came up. Gangs, hoochie mamas, disgusting language and behavior. Fair was shut down early when weapons and fights broke out. The fair no longer dedicates days and installed higher security requirements. San Mateo Fair has gone gang for years now---nortenos! No no viva Mexico todos!!
