Traditionally, university donors have little official input into choosing the person who fills a chair they've funded. The power of university faculty and officials to choose professors without outside interference is a hallmark of academic freedom.

The mini-industry of conservatives and libertarians that has sprung up to defend the Kochs tells a story of the Kochs as shy, retiring intellectuals yearning only for high-level philosophical discussion in the free marketplace of ideas.
