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.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
