Teaching Economics From Iraq

Military and education in one post--I love it!

Where there’s a will — and a laptop — there’s a way to teach economics in North Dakota while serving in Iraq. Cheryl J. Wachenheim, an associate professor of agribusiness and applied economics at North Dakota State, is also a captain in the Minnesota Army National guard. When she was deployed last year as a medical logistics officer to a base known as Mortaritaville, she continued teaching courses in micro- and macroeconomics...

She used the base’s shortage of Diet Mountain Dew to teach students about supply and demand.

I'm sure she's just a mindless automaton, probably breaking down doors in the middle of the night and shooting babies--at least to lefties.
