Compton. I lived in Compton so very long ago in the early 50s that edges of the town had a dairy farm and people grew crops. Sometimes a farmer would have his son drive the pick up truck carrying a load of watermelons in the back and he'd saunter down the street singing an old song shouting out "watermelons!" every now and again. Then he'd go up to a door and knock to see if people inside might want any. Others would park their old pick ups on a major thoroughfare, near a market, and the back would be spilling with yams still with dirt on the roots.
And it's more than a little weird to consider it, but George Bush senior and his wife and their young family also lived in the town at that very same time. So I can say I lived in the same town as a couple of presidents, but the place wasn't anything too much like Washington D.C.
