11.15.2004 - UC Berkeley chancellor named to Prop. 71 stem cell oversight committee:
"BERKELEY - Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau was named today (Monday, Nov. 15) to a committee charged with overseeing the implementation of California's new $3 billion stem cell research effort.
'I'm pleased and honored by this appointment,' Birgeneau said, after Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante made the announcement at a press conference at UC Berkeley's Hearst Memorial Mining Building. 'This is an important responsibility, and there is much work to be done.'"

Only two months as a Chancellor in the US and he is already getting more state government appointments. I hope he will be as good at fundraising as he is at landing prestige-enhancing positions.
Let me see if I have this straight. The State of Califormia is already overspending by billions of dollars and now they have mandated a stem-cell research plan that has shown absolutely ZERO breakthroughs on the medical front. I'm sure that a federal judge will NOT find this to be unconstitutional. But, don't ever, and mean ever, let the people decide the issue of gay marriage or state benefits for illegal immigrants.
