Strange Days

I found a journal article for sale on amazon.com today for the low, low price of $5.95:


It's the first time I've seen an academic article for sale on amazon. I wonder if it's a viable paradigm. It seems quite odd to me.

I think it's weird too. An article I wrote for Radical Teacher about the patriot act a few years ago can be had for like six bucks on Amazon. It's only worth maybe fifty cents, so I hope students are taught well enough by their library instructors to avoid making that kind of mistake. As I always say: DO NOT PAY FOR INFORMATION. EVER. CALL ME FIRST AND I WILL GET IT FOR YOU.
