RIP Long Time Mason Economics Professor Walter Williams who appears to have died sometime in the last 24 hours as described in the link below. https://www.econlib.org/walter-williams-rip/ I had Dr. Williams as an econ professor many, many moons ago (1988). He was still at Mason as of this year (based on Mason's website, I don't know if he was still teaching or not). He was by far, my favorite professor in my time at Mason. Very entertaining and interesting in his teaching style. One of his great techniques was to make very provocative statements that most people would disagree with at face value. This would get your attention and get you involved in the conversation. Then he would proceed to prove his point. I believe we even have a poster on the boards here who uses his name as his moniker. P.S. Admins: I read something about OT boards being closed. Hopefully since this is totally Mason related, it is OK. If not, my apologies, feel free to delete without complaint by me.
