BOB JONES UNIVERSITY BARS STUDENTS FROM SAN FRANCISCO, FOR FEAR OF AIDS: OK, I found that quote in the alternate universe where Mr. Spock has a goatee, and Lt. Uhura saucily displays her bare midriff while on duty.

But back in this universe, AP reports that “The University of California at Berkeley will turn away new students from SARS-infected China, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong this summer in what is believed to be the first such move by a major U.S. university to prevent the spread of the virus.”

It should be fun to see if any flak comes to Berkeley for their actions.
