“In September 2010, Forbes magazine placed Atherton’s zip code of 94027
at #2 on its annual list of America’s most expensive zip codes, with a median home price of $4,010,200. Atherton is one of the wealthiest cities in the United States.” (Wikipedia)
I found a few examples of the type of charmed life people in Atherton live when looking at these excerpts from the police blotter in that area. Along side reports from less affluent areas: “A vehicle was struck twice by two males who tried to rob the driver at gunpoint, then fired at him several times as he sped off,” and “A female was robbed at gunpoint outside her residence by two males who took her purse,” is one from Atherton: “A woman told police someone was at her door and that when she asked who it was, no one answered. Police responded and determined the stranger outside had delivered package.”
