Eye Chart Pledge

Seen today in the Student Fiscal Services office: this (subliminal?) pledge, formatted as an eye chart:

I wonder if this actually has any effect on student loan default rates.  Some enterprising psychology or education grad student is no doubt running that study at this very moment.

I knew this camera phone would come in handy eventually.  Note that you can just make out, reflected in the glass, a faint image of Yours Anonymous Truly.  I played around with GIMP a little bit, and it's possible to improve the contrast and get a clearer look, but fortunately the "I" in "WIL" obscures my face.  Whew, that was close!  You'll just have to wait until the linguistiblogger dinner at LSA 2005 for the Big Reveal.

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.
