California decline observed from a hospital emergency room: Victor Davis Hanson

For years, Victor Davis Hanson has been reporting the demographic changes from Fresno County in central California. A favorite of mine is The Civic Education America Needs about the education experience he had in the early 1960s where his diverse school taught American values.

A recent spill from his bike put Hanson into the hospital, and his observations from the emergency room of third world immigrants getting first world healthcare are illuminating.

More disturbing is his report of a neighbor being killed a week ago for confronting “intruders” on his farm who were stripping a stolen car.

That case was apparently the murder of George Salwasser: Four Suspects Accused of Killing Valley Farmer, May 13.
