I had nothing to do with this, other than taking the picture outside the campus library Thursday afternoon. Nor do I condone graffiti or vandalism of university property. And neither would I ever endorse or encourage it.
But this did make me smile yesterday (though this would perhaps have been more appropriate).
I rather doubt that this will lead to any substantial student protests - folks in Guy Fawkes garb and stogies on the quad, for example. Smoker numbers in the designated smoking areas always seemed rather low. And a good fraction of those smokers are international students who might be reticent to get involved in student protest. And while I wonder about the elasticity of smoker versus non-smoker enrollment to university smoking policies, I'd be surprised if it were terribly high in either case.
