Maybe John Muir was a fool. Muir, the godfather of contemporary environmentalism, was among the first activists to proclaim the "oneness" of humans and the natural world and to insist that we seek to live in harmony with our surroundings. So convinced was he of nature's essential goodness that once during a temblor, he ran out of his cabin at midnight crying "a noble earthquake! A noble earthquake!" But after the events of the last week in Japan, it's hard to see his point.

Past and current members of UC Irvine's Muslim Student Union say a move to suspend the club for allegedly disrupting an Israeli official's speech is unduly harsh and overlooks the group's history of religious and charitable endeavors. The Muslim Student Union, which has been on campus for 20 years, faces a yearlong suspension after the university concluded it planned repeated disruptions of a speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren in February. The group denies organizing the protest and is appealing the recommended suspension.
