I was just walking down the hall and realized once again that our law school needs a new building. As long as you were building a new building, you might as well set up an institute that would study the legal, economical and cultural foundations of a free society, from its common law beginnings, to constitutional principles, to the intellectual property rules that make progress possible. It should have state of the art facilities and the best people. I think you could get all this for about $100 million. But we could make $50 million go a long way.
So if you have $100 million or even less that you would like to change the world with by fighting the battle of ideas, you might want to drop me a line. (tacsmith at gmail dot com.)
As this very good lawyer I knew used to say, it never hurts to ask.
