    Lots of turnover here and you can do a search for it, and the Birdman can give extensive background on this shop.

    I'm guessing the AVP eventually found an SE?

    If you like all the crime of an urban area, with the all-hope-is-lost feeling of a rural area, the Antelope Valley is for you.

    And you get a nice dose of afternoon dust storms for your trouble.

    Jay Heater is the SE, formerly of Contra Costa Times fame. From what I've read here he's got a pretty good rep.

    Stopped there once on the drive to a desert outpost. Town itself felt less than safe, but far less Podunk than many places that make the rounds here.

    I applied there three years ago and visited for a couple of days. Lancaster and Palmdale butt up to each other at a population of about 150k each. Nice minor-league ballyard for the High-A Lancaster JetHawks of the California League, big-ass mall. You're only an hour or so away from that shithole known as Hollywood if you want to go night-lifeing (if ESPN can make up words, so can I) in L.A. Even better, you're an hour AWAY from L.A.

    There were crime stories in the AVP issues I checked out (usual Cali smut: gangs, drugs, good old-fashioned street violence), but I liked the place. Nothing there that I considered to be too out of hand. Then again, I was born in Stockton.
