I actually feel bad for Lodi. It is a place, like many in the San Joaquin County area, that is rich with culture and interesting people. I think there could have been much opportunity to share that culture with the rest of the world and give an actual reason for people to visit the city. Imagine how much more culture a largely German and Mexican town could offer. But I guess this is not a financially safe notion. Not like yet another KFC or Hobby Lobby. Alas, my thoughts go unheard.
