The streets in the neighborhood are named after thinkers like Newton and Curie and Mendel. The residents tend to have IQs the size of their ZIP codes and came to Orange County from places like Princeton and Yale and the National Science Foundation and some of the country's leading research laboratories. They came armed with big resumes and the kind of intellects that can help transform good universities into great ones. Some kind of neighborhood, huh? Imagine a block with no blockheads.
