Gratuitous Austan Goolsbee update

As has been noted before, this blog has developed an odd fixation with GSB Professor and Barack Obama

As has been noted before, this blog has developed an odd fixation with GSB Professor and Barack Obama adviser Austan Goolsbee. Alec previously delved in the economist’s college debate record at Yale, while I meekly attempted to figure what kind of political clout he actually has. I guess we are just suckers for B-List academic celebrity.The signs are now up all over campus for one of the quirkiest and consistently excellent U of C traditions–the 61st annual Latke–Hamantash debate at Mandel Hall. And joining the debate for the first time will be none other than Austen Goolsbee. Oh geez!You can get all the event details here. I’ve never liveblogged, and I don’t have a Blackberry so I probably won’t this time, but this is the first time I will be able to attend so just know that the possibility is out there.
