The Strings of La Mancha – May 2010

In Charge of What Project?

We were on the library floor of the new tower. Dr. Lori Barr’s No Bull Branding class was looking at the musical notes represented by the placement of the iron newels in the balusters of the handrail that wraps the overlook into the lecture hall below.

Mike Hayden said, “We should stretch guitar strings vertically between each of the balusters and tune them so that if you ran a finger across the strings as you walked the full length of the handrail, you’d hear the song.”

Everyone laughed; the sure sign of a brilliant idea.

“Let’s do it,” I said. “You’ll be in charge of figuring out how much it will cost and of raising the money to install it.”

That’s how we do it here. Whoever makes the suggestion is in charge of raising the money. I’m pretty sure it will be the only handrail in the world like it.

The song? The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha.

Yes. Wizard Academy has the coolest business school students in the world.
