Region: The Western Isles
Thatís funny, and yeah probably not the whole state but thereís probably also a kernel of truth for some parts. Iíve heard horror stories of crap, condoms, trash, and needles in the streets of some areas in San Francisco and LA. Same for Eureka (some relatives live up near there).
EDIT: I am in CA, but havenít hardly been to LA, and not been to SF very recently. I do remember seeing a whole homeless encampment by an exit in SF a few years ago though. So thatís what Iíve been hearing.
