Some people know - and care

One of the folks I receive e-mail from, on one of the many mailing lists to which I am subscribed, sent this:

Attached is a photo I took a couple of weeks ago of a movie theater in Fremont [California]. You may know that Fremont has the largest single population of Afghani people outside of Afghanistan.
Actually, I didn't know.

He concludes:

You won't see this one on the news.
Indeed not. But we – and the Afghan people, over here and over there – know the story.

You're right. We'll never see that on the news, and it's a damned shame.

Heh. I know some Iraqis. You'll never hear THEIR comments on the news either.

I didn't know that about Fremont. That's where I'll be this weekend (at my friend's place)

Wow! That is very cool! Maybe FOX will show it, or something similar; that is, if they can spare some time from the Peterson case! ;)

You might not see it in the news but you could read it.
The San Jose Mercury News has written a few pieces about this theater that was purchased by an Afghan business man just this year.
