quickie time!

It’s been far too long since I updated. Of course, I have 6 more pages to write for my thesis (due tomorrow), so I chose to come on here first. Always a good student.

Just wanted to make a quick comment on the UC Protests today. I am fully in support of getting more money for education. However, I think if we’re ever going to be able to do that in CA, we need to repeal Prop 13 (which essentially froze property taxes– which support education– at 1970’s levels), and in order to do THAT, we need to eliminate the need for a 2/3 majority vote. It’s easy enough to go around chanting “education should be free,” but the fact of the matter is that it can’t be in this day and age. I do believe that, ACROSS THE BOARD, administrators and high-paid professors shouldn’t be paid such exorbitant amounts. Problem is, when private schools can offer ridiculous salaries, schools like Cal are forced to keep their salary offers high to attract and keep good professors. It’s one huge Catch-22, and there’s no easy fix.

More on all this later…
