10:20 pm: Initiatives
As expected, all of the California ballot initiatives failed by very wide margins, except the one limititing pay raises for legislators, which passed overwhelmingly.

This is entirely unsurprising. It does however mean that the University of California (along with most everything funded by the state) is screwed. Screw-Ed.

With the semester ending this week, and graduations and finals actively going on, I expect UC Berkeley to wait until next week before announcing the first of several new waves of lay offs. The other UCs are on the quarter system, so their semesters end a bit later. I don't know what to expect in terms of timing of lay-offs. I do expect that people I know will soon be out of work.
