Terrible strategy. Yesterday, students in the infamous, highly selective, fiercely competitive and all-access “Grand Strategy” class received a stern reprimand from professor Jeremy Friedman for not … writing their names on their work. “Also, and I can’t believe I need to say this, whenever you submit something, please remember to put your name on it.” Please.
