Posters of the academic left 

Phil, noting my Summers post yesterday, reports on a meeting room.
...last week, my colleagues and I held a economics faculty meeting in the Sociology Department's conference room, complete with a big poster of Che Guevera on the door. I would have preferred a poster of Milton Friedman, George Stigler, Gary Becker, or Adam Smith. But the local Wal Mart had replaced their posters with posters of Jessica Simpson (or was it Lisa).

My office has a rather leftist poster of its own, along with messages of despair. But I can't avoid this one.

Summer is coming, and my photo shoots of "doors of academics" is due for a new edition.
