A lesson for Cal State faculty

Our view: Strike plans insult the working Californians who pay professors' salaries. The next time you feel like venting about your lousy job, just remember, it could be worse. You could be a professor in the California State University system. Think of it, a guaranteed job for life (once you've reached tenure), sabbaticals and conferences in exotic locales. And how about that schedule? There's Thanksgiving break, winter break, spring break, summer break, plus all of the state and federal holidays (about 14 in all). Our guess is that they don't linger on Friday afternoons either, if you know what we mean.
