And I thought us UC Santa Cruz students and alums only had to deal with the defensive ticks we developed by being the stepchild to that other
University of California in the Bay Area. But no! We apparently attended the Worst School in America
The always endearing David Horowitz, in addition to posting an article
showing the university's crimes-against-academia/cool-classes, was on Fox News decrying the University's policy of turning patriotic Midwestern kids into Molotov-throwing Marxists. After watching that clip, I do have to wonder what career paths are available to someone with a skillset that includes "Can organize anti-capitalist revolutions."

Metro Santa Cruz's 50 Reasons to Not Vote for Arnold for Governor
And no, none of the reasons are because of awful movies like Jingle All the Way
Real reasons like the fact that he's a chauvinist, his father was a Nazi, he used to run the President's Council on Fitness and now admits to using steroids to win bodybuilding competitions, he has no plan on how to fix the state's budget issues just that he's gonna clean house. Or the fact that he made up the story about gang raping a black woman for the Oui interview back in 77'
(think about that, he lied about participating in a gang rape, that's pretty demented behaviour).
Interesting reading and damned scary if this is the next governor of the 5th or 6th largest economy in the world.

It seems a middle school lad in Santa Cruz, CA had something different in mind for extra credit.
Clark said the teacher, who was aware the 14-year-old boy had past problems with marijuana, jokingly asked for one of the "pot brownies." The boy gave her one, and she ate it.
Be careful what you ask for.
