February 19, 2013 - Greetings from the Orange Curtain - Pictures

Side note: Well he is starting to speak the language. "Orange Curtain" is according to Wikipedia -

The Orange Curtain is a term that refers to the border between Orange County and Los Angeles County in the U.S. state of California.[1] It is a sometimes derogatory, sometimes lighthearted term, that is used to describe Orange County's more conservative and suburban population as compared to the more liberal and urban population of Los Angeles.[2][3][4] The Orange Curtain is a word play on the infamous Iron Curtain which separated communist and capitalist Europe.[5]
According to Colleen Cotter, "Because [Orange County] has a reputation for political conservatism, people from Northern California especially worry about what happens 'Behind the Orange Curtain'."[4]
Karin Aguilar-San Juan describes the Orange Curtain as being between 1890 and 1950, as "the region's controlling elite also embraced a John Birch-style ideology of white supremacy and small government.[6]
The song "Orange County Girl" by Gwen Stefani uses this term, stating "I guess behind the orange curtain it's not so bad."
