Verizon Wireless Reminds You to Silence Your Cell Phone During Class

Today we got an email from the high-ups in the University. Our funding has been cut by tens of millions of dollars, but we aren't supposed to raise tuition.

I'm willing to put corporate logos on my PowerPoint slides if the Math Department gets to keep a decent share of the ad revenue. Heck, I'd even show movie trailers on the lecture hall projection system before class with a plug for our local cinema chain. Advertising and sponsorship supports athletics. Why not calculus?
