Good Work if You Can Get It

Thanks to the Student Union at Washington University in St. Louis we get a window into current market rates for a few on-campus speakers:

$145,000 - Al Gore
$127,000 - Bill Maher
$92,000 - Fareed Zakaria
$72,400 - Gary Kasparov
$69,493 - John Legend
$60,000 - David Brooks
$57,300 - Sanjay Gupta

Let me extend an offer to the students at Washington University -- I will be happy to provide a far more accurate and pragmatic talk on climate change than Al Gore for, oh, less than half of what he is asking;-)
