Donald Luskin says there’s “signs of life amidst the leftist graveyard known as academia”, and posts an email that highlights a debate between a small-l libertarian economics major at a California university and his “very liberal” professor who “shares an office with an econ professor who is an avowed Socialist”.

Taranto suggests that if you have kids who’re in college, you might want to forward his column to them.

Update: On the flip side, Jim Lindgren looks at two Nobel Prize-winning free market economists who were driven out of the University of Virginia during the 1960s for “being on the wrong side of history” back in those Galbraith-dominated central planning days.
