Chris Newfield vs. Mark Yudof at the Chronicle

Chris Newfield has published an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education on the UC Budget. It is paired with an article by UC President Mark Yudof on the same topic, more or less. This juxtaposition of viewpoints provides a good overview of faculty advocacy for public higher ed vs. administrative resignation and accommodation. It would be good to have a discussion about how these two viewpoints differ qualitatively in their assessments of the present crisis.
