Lodi, California

From Academic Kids

Lodi is a city located in San Joaquin County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 56,999.

Named for a city in Italy, Lodi is best known as a center of wine production, although its vintages are far less prestigious than those of Sonoma and Napa counties. It is also an increasingly popular exurb for commuters priced out of homeownership in the San Francisco Bay Area.

"Lodi" is the title of a track from Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 album Green River. Although songwriter John Fogerty wrote the song about being trapped in Lodi, California, about 75 miles from his hometown of El Cerrito, he has admitted in interviews that he had never actually been there, and picked its name for the song's title merely because it sounded like the name of a small town.

In June 2005 several Pakistani-American immigrants residing in Lodi were arrested by federal authorities on suspicion of possible terrorist activity.
