Harvard Law School announced that it will cut its budget 10% next year, and lay off some employees.
In a dramatic move, several of the law school's aging leftists, tired of writing about their commitment to egalitarianism and social justice and their loathing of Harvard's elitism, and eager to put their words into action and embarrass the school and their more selfish colleagues, offered to take voluntary unpaid sabbaticals next year so that their much more poorly paid comrades could retain their jobs. Professor Duncan Kennedy was quoted as saying, "I have long advocated that HLS's professors and janitors switch places from time to time, and I'm happy to take the place of a laid-off janitor for the year."
Actually, only the first sentence is true. The second part hasn't happened, at least not yet.
