One liner

In Tuesday's State of the State address, Governor Gavin Newsom talked about all kinds of topics.

He truncated Jerry Brown's high-speed rail so that it would be confined to the Central Valley. He cut Jerry Brown's twin tunnel water project in half (one tunnel only). He talked about immigration, K-12, and various other matters for a total of about an hour.

He did talk about creating a new Master Plan, but it was a Master Plan on Aging, not higher ed.

There was in fact only one line in the address about higher education:

We have more scientists, researchers, and engineers, more Nobel laureates, and the finest system of higher education anywhere in the world.


Well, we can hope that the neglect was benign.
