Body Counts 101

My colleague Lones Smith circulated an email to the economics students and faculty today advertising a fellowship program at the World Bank. I thought at first it was a joke, as Lones' emails are usually about either something humorous, but it turns out that there really is a Robert S. McNamara Fellowship Program at the World Bank.

I suppose that given there are policy schools named after JFK, Woodrow Wilson (even worse!) and LBJ (really, really worse!) old McNamara is not so out of place, especially with only a fellowship program, but still.
