So I am reading A Critical Guide to Vehicles in the Park, a paper by Frederick Schauer, which was part of Hart-Fuller conference at NYU. Towards the end he writes,
But we are not choosing between Hart and Fuller for a single position on a law faculty. They are, after all, both dead, and that appears to make them unlikely candidates for faculty appointments.
Then there's a footnote, which says:
Which is not to say that we might not prefer to have them, even dead, over some of our colleagues.
Tough crowd they have at the K-School…
Funny. Thinking back on it, I would have rather had a few deceased professors as well. lol
