Everyone working in higher education (and elsewhere, actually!) should read this: on the recent sexual harassment case at Berkeley.

I am so disappointed and revolted with my university. On Friday, Azeen Ghorayshi posted a story about Geoffrey Marcy, a high-profile professor in UC Berkeley's astronomy department. It reported on a a complaint filed by four women to Berkeley's Office for the Prevention of Harassment and ...
