agree JL, and not a word about her infamous Sept. '12 four-point program which included not only the dreaded sales tax but also modest City pension reform, which is not mentioned (in the article anyway).

Marx lifted his famous quote -- "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need!" ["Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen!"] -- from Louis Blanc (1851). JL, your Mar 26 comment absolutely made it seem like this line was from Orwell (reread your post). Try admitting your error. The ballooning of federal government went bonkers under your man Bush 43, and in truth Obama has somewhat managed that expansion. Much of the "redistribution" has gone UPWARD to the 2% via tax write-off for private jets and yachts, and more inane BS. As an apologist for the hyper-wealthy, try to get your facts straight since it would facilitate rational discussion.

dewdly, YOU began these silly gender attributions with your "As a woman..." comment directed "@DrDan" on Mar. 26, 4:19pm -- the only interesting point is to confirm that your fallacious reading of the New Testament resembles your equal inability to scroll up a bit and acknowledge your own comment. Ridiculous, like your views on abortion.

JL, you are the one who doesn't really understand the "real world" -- if Pacifica is such a joke, why have over 5000 people attended this "unaccredited campus"? I've read their promo literature, they haven't stated they have that accreditation. Try to learn something about the real world: it has plenty of dimwits in it, you just learned this? Look around a bit, fella.

KV, state funding for public education is still not at 2007 levels so your positive idea about "educate the public" won't be happening soon.

agree, Tabatha! JL: reread your Orwell, he was writing about Stalinism and Nazism, so you then compare Obama to one wanting systems like those. Foolish.

my, dewdly, I had no idea your line to your God meant you could divine the gender of posters on the Indy. Wonderful! As a man, I've fairly often observed other men being worried or afraid of powerful and together women. Read some more N.T., dude.

She has published articles, and Duke U. Press is bringing out her book BROWN SUGAR (her Ph.D. diss.). I don't know how she could have gotten tenure without a real book out there, and the list of articles is fluffy and trendy. Much as I want to support her subject area and respect research in this domain, she is not an impressive example of homo academicus. Maybe she's one of those sanctimonious kiss-asses you rail about, Don? Yes, this will not help UCSB fundraising, and we STILL haven't heard from Chancellor Yang about this, although we know all about his Hawaian telescope project. C'mon, Henry, do your job.
She is also the lowest rated of the 4 profs who teach her subject, and the 15 student comments generally rate her easy, one-sided, and not too inspiring:

While Calef and SBTC do a lot of good, many enviros believe they sold out on the Gaviota section of the Calif. Coastal Trail -- (see comments section). Here, Otis is simply wrong about "historic use" of this preserve by mountain bikers: good to have your facts straight.
Completely agree Totoro2 that "anyone who claims bicycle use doesn't damage foot trails is not being honest. " Or, they haven't been using these frontcountry trails fror 40 years and don't have the perspective to witness the damage. Over on Little Pine Mountain mountain bikers have absolutely RUINED the Santa Cruz Trail.
