2) these words could apply to countless towns in america. don't infer you have anything to woe about. you're damn lucky to live in pleasanton with all the sushi bars and sf influences. go live somewhere else fo 6 mos and see how much you prefer pton.
3) i'm sure the chefs at hap's would be happy to cook you meatloaf every night.

I lived in Pleasanton in 1984. I don't have any problems with the way things are now. If everyone was closed minded and opposed to progress and change like you are, we wouldn't even have the internet for you to post this on.

What?---you race-baiting troll. Did he ever mention or infer race anywhere in his post?
You myopic Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton types make me want to hurl. No one can take you serious when you think everything is about race. Get over yourself and get the chip off your shoulder-OR- quit being such a whiny bleeding heart.

This is my first and last comment ever as it is the last time I will read the forum. Every topic turns into racism, politics, sarcasim, negativity, you people really need to turn your thoughts to something positive and useful.

Thank God Pleasanton changed since then, it sounded horrible in the 80's! Everyone drove a pick up truck and ate meatloaf and listened to Kenny Rogers! Did everyone in Pleasanton used to be trailer trash or was it just you?

re. Steve P's comment above - while this doesn't specifically mention race - it does contain several references to not wanting "outsiders" (i.e. keeping out SF values or the arrival of liberals). Race message may not blantly be there but same overall idea is still communicated, I'm confused by the line - "before Pleasanton got opened minded." The Bible teaches one to have compassion and respect for others. How can one do that if they are not open minded?
