Open Thread

Florida State University has accepted donations from Charles Koch to fund (and screen and approve) faculty for their economics department. And they also take money from the BB&T bank holding company that funds a course where students are forced to read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. To understand what a terrible thing that is to do to someone, you only need to read Whittaker Chambers's review of it. To say he was not impressed with Rand's opus is putting it mildly.
