Seven of California’s 10 zip codes most burdened by pollution are in the San Joaquin Valley and three are in Los Angeles, according to a new tool developed by state environmental officials to target communities for cleanup.

    Doug, article points out that it's three zip codes in the City of Stockton therefore it is not the Stockton/Lodi area. I'm just wondering if they are referring to environmental pollution or political pollution?
