I read a letter to the editor the other day speaking about the “criminal” element that could be brought into town by having the Walmart take up residence in the location formerly occupied by The Great Indoors.
Wow, sounds kind of racist to me. If you look at the ethnic makeup of both Burbank and Glendale, it has changed drastically in the past 30 years that I have lived here.
No one group has a lock on the criminal element, it is spread throughout all of them. When Burbank was a sleepy little town that Johnny Carson made fun of, there was definitely much less crime, but its citizens had to go out of the community to shop at places like Walmart, Target and others.
