Crane: "It should come as no surprise that the legislature refuses to confirm someone who points out the elephant in the room: that it is the California Legislature that's privatizing UC.

The UC Regents are going to have to figure out what they support and fast- no more sitting on the sidelines.
Remaking the University has another very, very interesting new post.
Carlos Santana had an interesting speech at his induction into the CA Hall of Fame. He may have had this next story in his mind...
