a mayor in california calls for what?

I heard a story this morning about a town in Northern California that has been plagued with gang violence.  The mayor, in response to the prompting of a local, and willing to go to extreme lengths to improve the issue at hand, agreed to call the city to…..     

a week of fasting?!? 

That’s right.  The mayor and police chief of Salinas are fasting for a week.  Many, many others are adding fasting to the equation. 

It sounds like a story out of the Old Testament or something.  Imagine that!
