What They’re Reading on College Campuses
Remember Professor Pottymouth?
Now comes the bestseller rankings: #1 is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. No surprise there.
And from Princeton is #6 Bullsh*t, by (tenured) Professor Harry G. Frankfurt*.
These two academic achievements have one thing in common: neither have footnotes.
