Correction
Yesterday's article "UC Berkeley Panel Probes Cause of Deadly Bali Blast" incorrectly stated that members at a panel, including UC Berkeley professor Jeffrey Hadler, said the United States may have had an active role in carrying out last week's bombing of an Indonesian night club. Hadler and the other panelists actually said some Indonesian groups have alleged U.S. involvement in the blast as a possibility. At this time, there is no actual evidence supporting these claims by some Indonesian groups.

Correction
Yesterday's article "UC Berkeley Panel Probes Cause of Deadly Bali Blast" should have stated that panelists said Islamic countries are spiritually interconnected, not politically interconnected.

Two years ago, students elected me to be their voice on the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board. As someone who has spent years fighting for better student representation, I am heartened by the upcoming possibility.
