Like most public universities, my alma mater, the University of California at Berkeley, is hurting for cash these days. Investing in future citizens is not in vogue in most states, especially those that have let Republicans make taxing ourselves nearly impossible.
So, like most good nonprofits on the make, they send out glossy brochures. Since I'm away from my mail, I don't know if I got this one. But I saw a mention over at Balkinization and tracked it down.
Apparently they thought that in the interests of non-partisanship and diversity, they should showcase a Republican Asian. But Mr. Torture Memo? And then letting him whine about how disruptive it was to interrupt his academic career to go justify atrocities...I mean do "public service." Plueeez...
Berkeley, you lost me here.
