SJ Mercury News
Berkeley Daily Planet
this is from UC Berkeley Public Affairs - interesting how they view Californians as 'non affiliates'...but at other times when they want $ - they want 'all Californians to stand up for UC'.
KGO has the best coverage today- with video.
Reasons for all this covered well here:
Heather McGhee on the Millennial Generation with Bill Moyers
“Millennials”, the 80-plus million Americans who were born roughly between 1978 and 2000, are getting hit hard by economic circumstances created over the past 30 years. They may be the first generation of Americans who cannot count on doing better than their parents. How have these realities affected their outlook? And how will it impact Barack Obama’s future? Millennials turned out for him by huge margins in 2008, but their enthusiasm has waned. In this Moyers & Company segment, Bill Moyers talks with a Millennial who has dedicated herself to tackling these issues. At 31, Heather McGhee directs the Washington office of the research and advocacy group Demos, and is fighting for financial reforms and consumer protection.
“Our generation is the most diverse generation in American history… But we are also the generation that is experiencing record inequality — inequality in our economy and inequality in our democracy,” McGhee tells Moyers. “We need to become a very politically-engaged generation.”

is anybody paying any damn attention to what is goin' on in SD? The Gov. said: "The people who know about teaching are the people who teach…you gotta have tests…but this whole testing business hasn’t always been the way it is today…it was a new idea in 1977 that the SAT would be a requirement to get into University of California…tests have become an obsession…too much of a good thing becomes a bad…salt, calcium, tests…I want to put teachers in charge of the schools…(Is he speaking to the California Federation of Teachers which is backing one of the tax-raising measures that threaten his own proposal?)"
