Upcoming Public Comments at Regents

It may be that the public comments periods will be the most exciting part of the Regents meeting scheduled for tomorrow and the day after.  Look for protests against the appointment of a pro-Israel student regent.  As we have noted in prior posts, this appointment seems to be part of a regental strategy to "balance" last year's appointment of an anti-Israel student regent.  In this case, the current situation in the Middle East plus the confrontation in Westwood near UCLA are likely to exacerbate feelings expressed in the public comments period.  The latest references to current events are at: 

The Regents have already said they will approve the appointment but this issue may drown out those who regularly appear demanding the Regents fire UC prez Napolitano.   On verra.
