Calling bullsh*t

What a great idea for a course!

One can imagine a whole series of specialized follow-on courses dealing in depth with academic administration, the editorial pages of major newspapers, beltway advocacy groups, and so on.

If they want to add some local flavor they could do a class on the speech that former University of Washington president William Gerberding delivered at my graduation ceremony back in 1985. It concerned, as I recall, how the Japanese were going to bury us via their clever industrial policy.

Be sure to read the whole thing, even the (hilarious) legal disclaimer.
