Two Faces of Meg
Published: Friday, Oct. 01, 2010
Atherton, the town that I moved to 1962 is one of the wealthiest towns in the United States. It has more police per person than any city or town in the United States. When the "Silver King of the Comstock Lode," James C. Flood (who was an Bohemian), used part of his reported eighteen million dollar fortune to purchase 600 acres off Middlefield Road, built Linden Towers, a 44-room, three story home.
He adorned his 1878 estate house with towers, gables and cupolas and furnished with exotic. The area now known as Lindenwood was developed between 1937-1955, after the death of Flood's son. Some of my neighbors were the Chairman of the board of such companies as Kelly-Moore Paints, Memorex, Transamerican and Ampex.
About block and half from Lindenwood is Oak Grove Ave which is the street where Meg Whitman lives. Neither side is really concerned about the poor and needy as they can afford to be crooked to cheat and to rob and to figure out ways to chisel the government as found herself embroiled deeper in controversy Thursday over whether she and her husband received a government letter.
