Wow, it sometimes everyone is connected to Fresno.
Does anything important happen there? In my book, damned straight!
FWIW, I was born in Reedley (Fresno County), although my family moved south when I was 4. My Dad is a graduate of Dinuba HS (Class of '46). I have a fair number of relatives in the Fresno area.
Also FWIW, here is a picture with Steve C taken in the fall of 2006 (in Fresno, of course).
