11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

8/29    OC turning liberal, maybe there is hope for CA afterall:
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

        \_ I just bought a hot homeless teen runaway lunch.
           Am i going to jail?
           \_ Was she 18?
        \_ FYI people "MILF" doesn't always mean what you think it means.

4/15    Guess who is not on this list (States with worst projected deficits):
        \_ Don't know how CA missed that list; we're looking at a $20B deficit
           on $82.9B spending (24.1%)  -tom
           \_ Even if that number is accurate, it makes California #7. That's
              enlightening given the attenion California has received.

9/2     California will survive its crackup:
        \_ not if we can help it.
        \_ I like the comparison with Italy.  Maybe someday we can have
          dozens of political parties fighting!  yay chaos!!
          \_ Do you think Italian people have a lower quality of life than

8/12    Thanks for destroying the world's finest public University! (The Economist)
        \_ Why not raise tuition? At private universities, students generate
           revenue. Students should not be seen as an expense. UC has
           been a tremendous bargain for most of its existence. It's time
           to raise tuition to match the perceived quality of the

        China denounces US 'rights abuse':
                China has responded in detail to a US report published this
                week criticising China for alleged rights abuses. Beijing
                released its own report on the US, saying crime is a threat to

2/16    So California is going to lay off 20% of employees. Seems like a
        good idea, but won't all those people now get unemployment benefits? So
        we'll be paying something like 60% of their salaries (depends on
        their income) for 0% of their work.
        \_ It's a great idea because we're starving the beast. Who needs
           a big government? Every man should be self reliant for his own

2/16    California is truly f'd for sure this time.  Can we find another pair
        of stupid radio DJs to start a drive to recall Arnold?
        \_ It will only help if we get a governor with a spine, and get rid of
           the incompetent legislature.
           \_ How do you expect that we will get a decent ledge?  With the 2/3rd

2/4     Another business flees California
        \_ this whole bribe businesses to "create" jobs is a crock of bs imo
           \_ Sure, but the end result is CA loses jobs.
              \_ well, no, it isn't.  Other business replace them.  -tom
                 \_ May I suggest that when you make such asinine comments

1/12    Californians fleeing to other states in record numbers:
        \_ Thank god, I hope this will ease up with congestion. On the
           other hand, this may result in Latino explosion... hmmm....

Contact Us Profile of Lee's Sandwiches Lee's Sandwiches is the product of the merging of ideas and family support. Chieu Le, the founder, came to America and settled in San Jose, CA in 1980. He began taking adult education classes to study English and frequently bought food from a catering truck before and after class. Seeing the potential of a portable food service vehicle, Chieu Le worked on a catering truck to better understand the business. By 1981, he bought his first catering truck and started his route around San Jose. Chieu Le saw more potential in the catering truck business. He saw the need for trucks to have a place to park and clean their trucks with access to easily restock food and ice. Foodservices, Inc, which him and his younger brother Henry Le developed in 1982. They chose the name "Lee" so it would be easily pronounced. Within time, they created the largest industrial catering company in Northern California; serving more than 500 independently owned and operating catering trucks at one time. In 1983, Chieu's parents, Ba Le and Hanh Nguyen, started serving banh mi, Vietnamese style sandwiches from their catering truck by San Jose State University to the students and residents in the area. Wanting to create a more permanent location and expand the options for their patrons, they opened the first Lee's Sandwiches location on Santa Clara Street. In 2001, Chieu Le and his eldest son, Minh Le, developed a new concept of Lee's Sandwiches. In addition to the traditional Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, they added Euro-style sandwiches, fresh baked baguettes and croissants, an extensive line of drinks including the Lee's Coffee - ca phe sua da and desserts. The family came together and developed this new concept and opened the first store in Southern California on Bolsa Avenue in Westminster, CA. The success of the new concept was profound and well received by the community. Unfortunately, Minh was not able to see his dream come to life. However, the dream lives on, within a few short years, Lee's Sandwiches grew rapidly, locations opening in Northern California and Southern California then onto Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. Currently there are over three-dozen stores, with plans to expand across the country. Lee's Sandwiches attracts a diverse crowd, from traditional Vietnamese- Americans to a younger crowd, all ethnicities of all ages with the extensive menu that offers a unique dining experience for every preference. Beyond providing fresh and delicious food for their customers, Lee's Sandwiches is heavily involved with the communities it serves. They have contributed and helped raised additional funds for many tragedies including 9-11, Hurricane Katrina, the floods in Vietnam, earthquakes in Mexico, and other local charities such as donating food and sponsoring various community and non profit events. Lee's Sandwiches epitomizes their role as a community leader and sets the example of embracing their responsibility of contributing for the better of the community.
