From the "Best of OC" issue of OC Weekly:
1568 South Orange County Community College District rabble-rousers, whose efforts have resulted in the district’s imbecilic board of trustees being ordered by an Orange County Superior Court judge to tape-record its closed-door meetings for two years due to persistent violations of the state’s open-meeting law. Also thanks to the dissenters, an accrediting panel this year denounced the way the district’s Saddleback and Irvine Valley colleges have been governed during the past two years.
1571 The most publicized South Orange County Community College District rabble-rouser, Irvine Valley College philosophy professor Roy Bauer.
1572 Besides being a constant thorn in the board’s side at public gatherings for the past few years, Bauer has churned out--with the help of anonymous correspondents--two muckraking newsletters: Dissent, which covers the district, and The Vine, which covers IVC.
1573 Besides hilariously clever clip-and-crop graphics, a recent Dissent included a mock advice column that looked as if it were penned by board president Dorothy Fortune. One not-really-Fortune response to a not-real reader: “Ours was the only community college in the nation to take the day off when President [Richard] Nixon died. Our district has a board member who thinks Israel and space monkeys killed JFK. Our board includes two members of the Christian Coalition, too.”
