America's most successful master-planned community. City is comprised of "villages," which are residential areas with common architectural themes, as well as commercial and industrial areas. Irvine Company, which still owns most of the land in the city, likes to say that villages were meant to be "jewels" and University of California, Irvine (UCI) the "pendant"; however, in "Where We Are Now: Notes from Los Angeles," essayist/L.A.

Its population of Asians is rising, (which makes the police vendetta toward them a bit more perplexing) which is good, maybe it will get the cops to stop being such assholes towards them.
Nothing happens here. It’s rather amazing really. At 10 PM everyone is inside watching the local news or sleeping. The only things I read about are the marijuana busts, and when ever something big happens most reporters have trouble finding the city. The ...
