Something to Do on Your "Day Off" - The California Economy

ROTC installed on UCLA's old Vermont Avenue campus in 1920
Yesterday, we noted that UCLA is closed for Veterans’ Day today (Monday) even though Veterans’ Day was on Sunday.  We also noted some not-so-positive history as to why there is no instruction today on UC campuses even though it reduces class time and generally is harmful to the academic endeavor.  And we noted that private universities such as USC and CalTech find it worthwhile to continue instruction today, unlike UC.

But since you do have a “day off,” albeit thanks to some prior unwise decisions by UCOP, we offer some education on the current state of the California economy, courtesy of yours truly – assuming you have an extra 63 minutes to spare.  Alternative links are provided below:
