Re “UC Davis administrator commits suicide after booze-fueled staff retreat in Monterey” (sacbee.com, Oct. 25): The drunken scandal in the UC Davis entomology program and sad suicide of the former colonel is an interesting story and well-reported. But it hardly deserves the prominence and space given it by The Sacramento Bee, when so much else is happening. The events seemingly were an anomaly and not part of a pattern of misbehavior. I cannot remember any similar incidents in my 39 years of service at UCD. What justifies so much prominence and space?
