Just a scat away.

While we’re on the subject of Harvard history, howlers, and humor, here’s a news flash about an economics prof who got his hands dirty:

Stable manager Phillip Casey says Martin Weitzman, Harvard University’s Ernest E. Monrad Professor of Economics, has been stealing manure from Charlie Lane’s Rockport farm for years.

Funny that a scholar of the ‘dismal science‘ should fail to offer compensation for goods received. I guess he practices a more ruthless political economy.
Thanks to Amal for the X-Amal-dumb-link: YES.
