The Man With the Golden Dick will host a townhall meeting this Thursday, April 2nd at the Pasadena City College’s Harbeson Hall. The event is free and open to the public. And by “Man With the Golden Dick,” I am of course referring to esteemed State Assemblyman Mike Gatto.
“It’s a rare opportunity. [Attendees] will be able to ask some of the hard questions that really matter,” PCC assistant professor of Social Sciences David Uranga was quoted as saying. Sounds like he’s planning to be a major dickhole and engage in some shameless grandstanding and demagoguery at Golden Dick’s expense. I hope we’re wrong. But as we all know, we never are.
Our suspicions seem to be confirmed by Uranga’s reviews on the venerated academic journal, Rate My Professor. Critics paint a vivid portrait of a teacher who enjoys giving humorous lectures but has little respect for his students and offers little attention in return. Online quizzes make it easy for students to Google answers, and his policy of eliminating low exam scores all but assure students an easy class to pad their GPA’s.
