I Never Realized What a Big Sack of Crap David Chiu Is Until I Saw This David Campos Attack Ad: “Raised in Massachusetts …Harvard”Monday, April 28th, 2014
Just look at this:
How are we supposed to react here, thank Goodness David Campos was born and raised in San Francisco and thank Goodness David Campos was never ever infected by that horrible Harvahd institution, am I right voters?
Actually, the big problem in this race is that President Chiu and Supervisor Campos are pretty much peas in a pod. Chiu would be a bit more pro-bidness and most likely he would be less in favor of affirmative action at UC campuses – those are the two issues I can think of where they’d differ. Otherwise, they’d carry similar bills, vote the same way, yada yada yada.
Anyway, here’s what you get from your mailbox, you get to see David Chiu staring at you from an anti-Chiu attack ad, which wouldn’t be an attack ad at all in the places where The Davids grew up…
Here’s the news, from a couple days back.
Let’s start with Hastings.
Here’s the reaction:
“Rankings Update: US News & World Report 2015
US News & World Report magazine has released its annual rankings of institutions of higher education. UC Hastings remains among the top law schools in the nation, with a reputation score on par with the top 25 from lawyers, judges, and peers. In “Law Specialties,” UC Hastings ranked #12 in Dispute Resolution and #25 in Clinical Training. Nevertheless, our overall rank has moved from #48 to #54.”
And this is from a year ago:
“Rankings Update: US News & World Report 2014
Last night, US News & World Report magazine released its annual rankings of institutions of higher education. UC Hastings remains among the top fifty law schools, tied with several others at #48. UC Hastings programs also rank in the top tier of “Law Specialties” this year, including Dispute Resolution at #9, Tax Law at #17, and Clinical Training at #27.”
And this isn’t from Hastings, but it touches on some relevant issues. From two years back:
Now on to University of San Francisco School of Law:
“Tonight’s Town Hall Meeting is at 5pm in Room 100, Dean Trasvina will be discussing the rankings news; however, the majority of the meeting will be Q&A. Please attend and share your thoughts on the state of the law school, programming ideas you may have, curriculum changes you want to see, or anything else you have on your mind. The Q&A should start around 5:15/5:20, so if you have class until 5:20 you will still have an opportunity to be heard.”
I imagine this situation is like having a twelve-month headache and thinking, upon awakening, oh yeah, the headache, the constant, nagging headache I gotta deal with…
Ouch, a Bad Year for SF Law Schools: UC Hastings Drops from the Top 50, USF Law is “RNP,” No Longer Ranked by US NewsTuesday, March 11th, 2014
Well, read it and weep, San Francisco. University of California, Hastings College of Law, which used to be a Top 20* law school, is now out of the Top 50, per the US News:
51. Baylor University (+3)
51. Penn State University (+13)
51. University of Richmond (+2)
54. Pepperdine University (+7)
54. UC Hastings (-6)
54. University of Connecticut (+4)
54. University of Nebraska—Lincoln (+7)
RNP. San Francisco (five-way tie at #144 last year with Duquesne, South Texas, Memphis, and Suffolk)
And RNP stands for Rank Not Published.

Assignment Desk: What If SFGov Held a “Free 3-Month Culinary Job Training Program” and Nobody Showed Up?Thursday, February 20th, 2014
You tell me, babe, is this official?
Sure looks official
How’s the attendance these days? I don’t know, actually.
What’s that, they’re promoting it through new channels, they’re still doing outreach for it even after it’s begun?
