The LSAT used to have a section full of logic puzzles: “If nine dwarves are sitting in a circle, each wearing a green hat or a red hat, and no three consecutive dwarves have red hats, then what color was the bear?” or some such.
Recent events remind me of those puzzles.
1. That Chancellor Michael Drake of UC Irvine says that the establishment of a “world-class law school” there is his “overarching priority;”
2. That Drake also says that made a “management decision” that “Professor Chemerinsky and I would not be able to partner effectively to build a world-class law school at UC Irvine,” and so, having hired Chemerinsky, promptly de-hired him; and
3. Drake, having run into an unexpected sh*tstorm about the de-hiring, has now decided to un-de-hire Chemerinsky;
then what is the maximum number of the following statements that could all be true:
A. Drake is a truth-teller.
B. Drake understands how to create a world-class law school.
C. Drake intends to remain as chancellor.
The answer is left as an exercise for the reader.
