What associate deans do ...

Michigan's new policy on drones .... I mean "unmanned aircraft systems".

But are we allowed to use the word "unmanned"? I would not have thought so.

Hat tip: Charlie Brown

Correction: An alert reader (who holds the title "deputy dean") writes me to note that, in fact, Michigan's policy on unpiloted (thanks don!) aircraft systems was conceived not by associate deans but rather by vice presidents. Upon reflection, I realize that I was using "associate dean" in the generic sense to mean any overpaid university administrator of non-obvious value (regular econjeff readers excluded, of course, as their value is clear).
