– This is hell week for me, so don’t expect much writing until tuesday, at the very least.
– Isn’t weird how ever hardcore lefties are endorsing a very “hayek-ian” or “conservative” approach to global warming – carbon tax / cap and trade? Some are starting to focus more on infrastructure and so on but it’s weird how, for example, Chris Dodd’s claim to progressive fame (for a while) was that he was the only candidate to endorse a carbox tax.
– I love the “Coalition for Change“. Sure, their name is a bit grandiose. Then again, now it’s easier to find people to chill with – the people tabling are almost guarenteed to be people I know and like.
– Got an email from Jehuda about the budget gap. The situation doesn’t sound too great. He says that students are being represented:
The Student Advisory Committee, led by Senior Vice President for Students and Enrollment Jean Eddy and Student Union President Jason Gray, is assessing the effects of proposed changes on student life and the quality of the Brandeis student experience.
Does this “student advisory committee” have much power? Doesn’t sound like it. And I haven’t heard much of anything from this committee either: does anyone know what’s going on? Rumor has it that they’re all sworn to secrecy. I don’t much like the sound of that.
So again, what’s going on? I ask all this in the spirit of inquiry, not pique.
