Is UC Pres. Mark Yudof In The Hospital?

one of the regents - the one with a voice that sounds like a cat in heat with laryngitis- said that he was disappointed 'Mark was not here and only able to get rest by being in hospital'- words to that effect. Is he? Any detail given? if you happen to know more on this leave a comment.

take a look at two important posts:
Chris Newfield's : Feeding the Cuts, Part I

and Bob Samuels: A Tale of Two UCs

(he writes "Ultimately, the state and the bond raters are telling the UC to screw the middle class, and the UC is obliging on a regular basis.") -- the saddest part of this is that the middle class is on a treadmill right now and not able to pay attention to the details of regents meetings --and many of the students don't even know about the hikes yet (that they know about one percentage increase in tuition-- but they are NOT aware of the multiple percentage increases and triggers midyear-- one of the student leaders mentioned this in her remarks to the regents this morning-- believe her name is Claudia Magana, head of UCSA-- she also recently told a local news paper she was abandoning her minor because of tuition hikes- she said she needs to get out sooner.)
