Justification for Higher Education
Just so everyone is clear on what we're talking about in the comments to my M.I.A. post. That's me in the Ferrari.
The funny thing is, this poster didn't seem at all out of place in The Palms, the main bar serving W&L's students in the late 80s and early 90s. It really did capture a bit of the spirit of most of the student population. It's only looking back over a couple of recessions and an Internet bubble popping that this seems so funny (horrible art aside, which we ridiculed even then).
And yes, as of last year, it was still hanging in the same spot in the bar.
Maybe this explains my pleasure at being one of the unknown alumni.
