Happy Friday Bay Area!
Welcome to the weekend. If this week kicked your butt as much as it did ours, you owe yourselves a little break to catch up on the biggest headlines over the last few days. Kick back and read along.
Janet Napolitano, the UC President, is in a position that commands power and respect, and ultimately, the work she does for the public university system is meant to provide a public service. However…at a meeting on Wednesday, students (in underwear) loudly began protesting tuition hikes when Napolitano reached her breaking point. As she told her colleague, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Just one problem: the mic was still on.
