For Cal's Wurster Hall folks

A gift from UCSB at the UC Regents Meeting today see:
Charlie Munger Announces His Experimental UCSB Dorm: UC Regents
With some side comments about donor strategy

- yep, it really went down like that...surreal. If you've been following the issues at Isla Vista for UCSB students --it starts off funny and then mixes with depressing...

"Munger stressed that there is “one huge catch” to his housing design: no windows — like Disney cruiseships’ artificial portholes where “starfish come in and wink at your children,” he said. “ … No one can tell it’s not a window,” Munger asserted. “Our design is clever. Our buildings are going to be efficient.” At the Munger Graduate Residences in Michigan, the individual bedrooms do not have windows but the common areas do."
