While I might not agree with all that "priceless" says . I do think journalists , such as Ray Ford ( if that's what you call him) SHOULD be asking questions like these. Instead we too often get these "carefully handled" PR pieces that in many cases state either the obvious or what we already know. Not only is it insulting to people who actually think - BUT it is a dis-service to the public, who papers like the Independent claim to support, and inform.
If there is nothing of merit discovered, then what harm is done? What is so wrong with asking questions ( as long as they are intelligent, well thought out and done so with respect and not attacks) ?

And the article forgot to mention that along with "recruit top-notch faculty" that hiring their spouses and other family members is common.
ie: UCSB might in fact rate highest in it's level of "Academic Nepotism"
Ask Chancellor Yang about that next time.

What passes for news in the "Theme Park" truly baffles me sometimes !
I almost suffered a "medical condition." from having (2) helicopters hovering over my house for almost a half hour Wed afternoon, presumably with their cameras trained on the KEYT station on top of the Mesa.
I would also agree that this is an abuse of tax payer money and would like to see the Independent ( how bout it Nick Welsh isn't this what the Angry Poodle column is made for ?) disclose what the price tag was on this debacle.

My apologies for what was taken as an insensitive comment, I meant no disrespect. Of course this IS a sad and horrible event - Especially for those involved.
What is wrong with this world? I have some ideas: Apart from wanton violence against each other it is the ease at which we launch personal attacks (physical and verbal)

"...former gang member J.P. Herrada, said his group has been working for a couple of months to quell any violence, but that retaliations had “been escalating for awhile now.”
Wondering could this be branded as a "hate crime" IF they determine that the victim was killed because he was "white" ??

Hey, compared to the UC Irvine professor's plotting to kill his students, this is a relatively minor crime, BUT nevertheless NOT good PR for Fielding Graduate Institute !!

"the perpetrator is a rich White guy, so he gets away with terrorizing a woman" ??
Yes just like OJ ..
My advice: think for yourself and don't always follow the "standard liberal party line" you will go a lot farther.

Nice to know that Animal Control in SB actually does something. I guess it takes a dog biting a human ( especially a child) to get the law to kick in. I for one have lost sleep for almost a year due to a neighbors 3 yapping chihuahuas and AC have done little to nothing. About now I am thinking animals have more rights than people do in our town.
