Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Considering I eat granola most days and am, as I type, wearing one, of several pair, of Birkies the snarkfest would be self-directed.

Let me put it this way: buried within the innards of the main library are reels of film of Upton Sinclair and other luminaries of EPIC giving speeches, interviews, & so on.  This archival material is one-of-a-kind.  It exists nowhere else.  This film is slowly disintegrating.  In the not too far distant future this film will no longer be able to be preserved.  The librarians would rather see the film disintegrate than allow outsiders to come into their precious stacks (gollum, gollum) and save it.  

This kind of insularity causes people at UCSC to reinforce each others neurosis' until they all turn crazy.  

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
