San Francisco Chronicle: UC faculty attacks regents in scathing letter

The UC Faculty Association all but declared the 26-member board AWOL, noting a two-month gap between meetings as the university faces cuts of more than $800 million this year and next as part of the state’s effort to close a $24.3 billion budget gap.
