The Orange County cities of Rancho Santa Margarita and Trabuco Canyon could have served as the model for Agrestic, the parody of suburban tract home sprawl in the TV series Weeds. And, as in the series, real life in the ticky tacky little boxes ain't no Ozzie and Harriet.
Authorities have confirmed that a man shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself in their home in upscale Rancho Santa Margarita.
Eddie Lydell Bryant, 39, shot Stacey Tomekia Bryant, 38, then killed himself, Orange County sheriff's Investigator Dan Salcedo said.
The shooting was reported at 1:42 p.m. Wednesday at their home on Birdhollow Drive. Deputies broke into the house and found the bodies, Salcedo said.
The couple, who were high school sweethearts, was having "relationship issues," he said.
"Relationship issues." He left the toilet seat up all the time, she was a big nag, something like that, right?
Not so fast. Zillow shows their home at 21421 Birdhollow in Trabuco Canyon was purchased for $702,000 in 2004, was worth around $850,000 at the peak and is now worth under $700,000. Is he underwater from a home ATM withdrawal? We may never know, but it's a fair bet he was struggling with the mortgage. You think being underwater, out of work, and with a wife whose income is dependent on the mortgage industry might add a little strain to the relationship?
Bonus: here's the LinkedIn profile of Kenneth (K. Edward) Bachrington, which is an alias used by Eddie Bryant. He claims to be a Marine with a UCLA
All a facade to try to keep up in Greenspan's bubble, I presume. But if he was telling the truth about the Anderson
Still completely proud of your bubble-blowing record at the Fed, Mr. Greenspan?

UPDATE: Video tribute to Stacey Bryant here. And the UCLA "MDE" program is a short evening or weekend course where "entrepreneurs" get a little course material and hang out with MBA students, so the price tag is obviously much cheaper than the full MBA program.
