This is kind of funny

Posted By on Tue, Oct 3, 2006 at 2:22 PM

After we posted our item this morning about the University of Arkansas's heavy-handed crackdown on a T-shirt it didn't like, we heard about someone else who'd had an unpleasant experience (as we have) with the Walton University legal department. It seems this person had been warned off using a photo of Old Main in a bit of feel-good image advertising meant to signify a business's arrival in Fayetteville. It turns out this is another image for which the university claims control of reproduction rights.

Now then. We invite you to check this website, which features the photo below of Old Main. We think you'll conclude, after noting the name "lindsey" in the url, that the university legal pitbulls aren't likely to go after this particular ad. University Trustee Jim Lindsey, shadow director of the athletic department and frequent partner in real estate dealings with the university, probably could use it on a T-shirt, even.

 And then there's this photo on the Lindsey website, where he wraps his advertising in the sancrosanct Hogs themselves, nickname, football stadium and all. Where, pray tell, is Lindsey-Walton University counsel Scott Varady now? What a bunch of hypocritical, power-mad bullies.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
