Marking the underground utilities so the protestors will avoid doing any damage? Sounds like they have been given permission to camp out as long as they want to.



Gee I hope nothing gets in the way of students just wanting to get their education.

Reminds me of the Berkley and Columbia protests of the 1960s. At least at Columbia, the protests were always held near the end of the spring semesters (1965 to 1968 or 1969). Some cynically saw this as a way for some students to disrupt the school from giving finals, etc... while enjoying the nice spring weather.

But at least, a good time was had by all.

I'm just sorry I was a decade or so years too young and missed out.

The students want lower tuition, higher academic departmental funding, lower salaries for management, higher salaries for those "at the bottom."

Where is the money coming from to support the UC system if they lower tuition, increase academic funding and increase salaries "at the bottom", I guess meaning the educators? Reducing a few management salaries will probably not be enough. Alumni contributions might help. Grants from corporations, well they do not want corporations influencing decisions in government. Would it be appropriate to influence the education of young people who might grow up and become members of the governmental process? How about additional state funding? Oh, sorry, California is broke.

This should be interesting...

ETA: Wait, I remember now...firing all of the campus police will generate tons of money system wide.

Yep. Why raise a finger to do anything for that institution? They obviously don't care what the little ****s do in the first place, so let them pay the price. If I was chief, I'd suspend all my officers and myself and put us all under "investigation" until it blows over and let the campus decide which way was better. But, that's why I don't get put in charge...:whistling:

Well, if it ever comes up, you've got my vote for Sheriff of UC Davis.

Of course then they would be screaming "Why didn't the JBT Militia do anything to stop the violence?"

Can we nuke the place already?

We never really recognized those northern campuses as being real "UC"s anyway... Berkeley was the first and they learned from their mistakes and then made it right by making UCLA. Davis was an experiment to inject some higher public education in a cowtown... I don't even know what the heck is Santa Clara... banana slugs? Really?

Let them have what they want. You get exactly the police you deserve, not what you need. Like Gotham, they got what they deserve, not what they need, to deserve, the need, but it's what they got... to deserve the need... arrrggghhh... DARK KNIGHT!!!

I thought that Davis was just an ag and vet school.

University of Santa Clara is the Broncos - it's a private Jesuit college. The Banana Slugs are UC Santa Cruz. It's right up there with Berkeley for freaks and bizarre aliens from other planets. Their real sciences departments are supposed to be excellent - physics, astronomy, biology - but unfortunately the liberal arts with heavy emphasis on "liberal" are where its fame comes from. And with the city of Santa Cruz's council elections being at-large rather than by districts, the university students have a powerful voice and control the city council.

I stand corrected, UCSC is Cruz, not Clara.

I am a Bruin, proud. Even after the beating from the University of Second Choice... Which does give you the best diploma money can buy.

My cousin graduated from UCD. It is a cow town. More cows than people.
