Sunday Commentary:  We Need to Put the Katehi Saga in Proper Perspective

In times of crisis, it is important to put things into perspective.  I am troubled by a comment in the Davis Enterprise, where they conclude, “A faculty position is scant punishment considering the damage she’s done to UC Davis’ reputation over the years.” While certainly the issue of the pepper spray incident is a black...
