No Comment

Here's an example of the kind of crap the LumpenProf won't be commenting on while on sabbatical:

In its agreement with the university, dated March 14, 2008, BB&T agreed to give WCU $1 million over seven years. ...

The agreement called for the establishment of a new Distinguished Professorship of Capitalism. “The Professor shall work closely with the Ayn Rand Institute and have a reasonable understanding and positive attitude toward Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism,” it stated. ...

Another concern lay with BB&T’s requirement that Atlas Shrugged be required reading for at least one course, and that a free copy of the book be provided to all juniors. ...

Faculty brought their concerns to the university administration, which agreed to address them even though the agreement between the school and BB&T was already in place.


  1. I thought your post was a spoof on the original article but no. MY GOD.

    At least I am not at that university. (While I am on sabbatical, my department will come up with a way to justify a new graduate program while the library is again under a mandate to save money by buying no books.)

  2. Enjoy your sabbatical. And the props I've just given you over at my humble corner of the Internet!
