Also from the Senate meeting, the Chancellor's representative, whose name and position I didn't catch, had three interesting things to say.

The first is that the Lower Sproul Redevelopment Plan is probably going to come with a hefty fee increase. Yay.

The second was that folks should consider whether they want "justice or vengeance" in using their leadership roles. He left the implications and blank-filling to the listeners.

The third was in response to a question from Dimitri Garcia about folks getting arrested at the protest over wages or some such. He explained what I've tried to explain for years: Civil disobedience doesn't mean you can break the law when sending a message without consequence. It means "I'm going to break the law, I'm going to go to jail, and I'm going to suffer that because I believe in my cause that much."

Thank you thank you thank you. Fine definition of civil disobedience.

I'm so tired of protestors breaking the law to prove a point, and then turning into whiny little bitches that demand amnesty for their acts. I've been ashamed of the Berkeley progressives demanding that amnesty over the past several years.
