Those poor, oppressed lesbian lover engineers of academia. Ever since the Larry Summers brouhaha started, in which Dr. Denice "Speak Truth to Power" Denton, chancellor-designate of UC Santa Cruz played the second lead after Nancy Hopkins in denouncing Summers, I've been pointing out the lesbian back-scratching within the high levels of the UC system. See "Feminist Corruption" and "Speak truth to power" and simultaneously help your lesbian lover cash in at the taxpayer's expense."
A reader points out that Dr. Denton and her close friend Gretchen Kalonji, both newly of high paying jobs at UC Santa Cruz, have been scratching each other's, uh, backs for some time:
Gretchen Kalonji, Ph.D.

July 23, 2003
Nominator: Denice Denton, Dean

My reader asks, "What exactly do they mean by "nominator " and 'nominee' here?" I dunno, maybe it's a term used in the lesbian personal ads, like, "Nominator looking for nominee for long steamy nights of nominations."
