Finally coming up for some air. I finished up another busy week in the newsroom.
The Bears knocked down Stanfurd last weekend. Go Bears! We watched the game on a couple of flat screen TVs at the Kezar Bar in SF. We had a nice mix of Berkeley and Tree fans – cheering on our teams and engaging in some light-spirited smack talk. Mark said the bar had some of the best Buffalo wings outside of Buffalo, NY.
It’s too damn expensive to attend UC Berkeley or any UC campus. I am so disappointed with the UC Regents decision to raise tuition by 32%. I can’t imagine my parents paying so much money to send 2 kids to Cal.
I also had a little dream that my kids would be able to attend my alma mater. But I don’t know if they could if they’re paying private school prices for a public university. I hope we can snag some scholarships for my future kids.
Also heartbreaking – watching police in riot gear face off against Cal students in front of Wheeler Hall. Cal has a history of student demonstrations and many of them end violently.
