September 13

Where did the people go?
The San Diego State University Library early on a Friday evening.
Normally this part of the library, the entrance and the circulation desk on the left would be very busy.
Due to budget cuts by the State of California the library has had to cut back on hours and is closed on weekend evenings.
The budget cuts have also affected the purchase of books and other materials.
Bottom line is students pay more to get less education, faculty and staff are paid less and the infrastructure corrodes with cut backs on repairs and improvements.

other sizes: small medium original

Walter, this is a fantastic view! I don't even want to get started on the budget problems. V

Walter,just the cost of one Bonus payment to one executive could change all these cut backs. V
