Bursting Bubble
Man with sword kills two in my hometown. Some Albertsons employee went off the deep end and rampaged with a Katana on Sunday killing two coworkers and wounding a bunch of other people. The witness accounts are interesting because shit like that doesn't happen in Irvine and they just don't know how to deal with it... Near the end of the article there is a quote from a middle aged woman who was getting a pedicure at the time, "A kid once called this place 'the Bubble' because it was so safe." She missed the point. EVERYBODY under 30 calls Irvine a bubble. At it isn't because it is "safe" but rather because it is so damn insulated from the reality of modern America.
