A Tale Of 2 Counties

a: Santa Clara County-Silicon Valley ~
b: A liberal version of Orange county

What: Both are wealthy. Both Transitioned from orchard cultures to modern suburbs very rapidly. Both are suburban in the worst way. Both are filled with status craving people who want the best of all. The people in Orange county happen to swing right, while many in Santa Clara happen to swing left. But take way the political veneer and you pretty much have the same people and the same culture. Even thought either place would be loath to admit the degree of commonality between the two. It is an example of the "narcissism of small differences"
