Are these folks endowed with ears of tin? How about this: Berkeley is the flagship UC, and we can improve it by zeroing-out UCSD! I think the arrogance in this letter will be self-defeating.

If you haven't already, Vladimir, see Dan's post here ( on the Modesto Bee's op-ed on this. Pretty amusing.

in the shadow of the valley of funding cutbacks

Vladimir is correct; this is really bad advocacy. The UCSB faculty should sure they know which way the gun is pointing before they pull the trigger.

There's something else here: the letter may signal the next direction for higher education in California. If there's no money, there will have to be cutbacks.

Will this new austerity affect places like UC Irvine's law school?
