Not an unexpected outcome, but ...

It comes as no surprise that, in spite of widespread protests, the Regents approved the proposed 32% fee hike in committee yesterday and will in all likelihood pass it today in the general meeting.

A prominent question we need to ask is, where is the academic senate in all this? Have they taken a position, one way or the other, or do the senate leaders prefer to leave such matters up to UCOP and the Regents?

The sad truth is that, as it was already clear, the senate leadership is in bed with the President and the Regents. It's a big comfy bed, with a portrait of Governor Reagan Schwarzenegger hanging above it.
