This is part nine of a continuing series, background here. Previous drawings can be found here, and here, and a billboard for the other six here. This appears in the classroom and office building stairwell nearest my office, and has been left up for months.
I am not interested, for those who have asked, in having this display taken down. It's not my job to decide what the university wants to present to students, staff and visitors (read: parents and incoming freshmen visiting campus for orientation). I would rather have this material out there for people to see, as it is my opinion that this is what the campus views as part of its function.
From yesterday's New York Times, an image makeover for Michelle Obama. Kind of dampens that drawing. Have you seen Oprah yet today?
