People out here jokingly refer to UC-Davis “Berkeley East.” It’s not, but it sure did try this week. Bully for those students for taking action and remaining peaceful. Can’t say I would have been there with them 20 years ago.
A three-post primer:
- A recounting of the day’s events from Jonathan A. Eisen
- Nathan Brown’s open letter to the Chancellor
- The Chancellor’s email response
Yes, it’s unpleasant. No, not everyone here is really paying all that much attention, but certainly a lot more now than after the 5-6 tents appeared in our Central Park to participate with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Meanwhile, there’s a whole bunch of people that just wish the rain would clear so they can squeeze in some miles in the saddle.
