A scholar who thinks it's an intellectual and moral sin to communicate with or appear in the pages of a journal in his field that disagrees with him about something or other is considered a bad candidate for a gig at Texas State's philosophy department–even when it would be paid for entirely by outside money. My favorite detail: the random use of the phrase "so-called" in front of your enemy's name: "The so-called Journal of Ayn Rand Studies." (Similar in its way to Monty Python's "so-called Mao Tse-Tung.")
The scholar is an Objectivist, natch, and the outside money was to come via a fund closely linked with the Ayn Rand Institute.
