Well, it's been a hard week in the world of UC Berkeley. First, a gaggle of human rights activists crashed the law school graduation last weekend, demanding that professor John Yoo be fired for... oh, you know what he did. Now, facing an uptick in animal rights protests, the University of California system has decided to no longer reveal how its scientists conduct animal research. According to the Sacramento Bee, UC lawyer Christopher Patti claims that divulging such information so inflames a certain segment of the faunally sympathetic community, so to speak, that they go bonkers and harass the eggheads right outside their Panoramic View homes. PETA attorney Jeff Kerr retorts that UC just doesn't want to reveal the gruesome details of planting electrodes in monkey brains. Thank God summer break is here!
