A Private Joke?

Wed Jul 9 08:06:54 2008
As I mentioned before, I suspect Fischer’s critique of Levy must have be a personal joke between them. At the time Levy was a highly respected historian at the top of his field and Fischer was fairly new. Levy had just won the Pulitzer Prize and he was the Dean of Faculty where Fischer taught. They had to have known each other and I suspect they may have been close friends. From what I have read I suspect they both held somewhat conservative political views in a state well-known for liberal and left-leaning politics.
