Howard’s End: Judges Can't Be Independent From Voice Of The Public

Rosalea Barker: Berkeley’s CITRIS Could Be a Lemon

- The Berkeley campus of the University of California sports what must surely be the most aromatic monuments to ill-informed decision-making that you could find anywhere in the world. The early planners of the campus decided to plant copious trees that could be used for construction timber and looked about for a fast-growing, tall, straight-trunked candidate that would fit the bill. The one they decided on was an import from one of their Pacific neighbours. It was the Australian gum tree. See... Stateside: Lemon Tree Very Pretty [1]
