He had to buy a printer

My friend and former colleague Colby Cosh, who has just bought his first printer, notes that the CUPpies have arranged to get Lewis Lapham as their guest of honour at their conference this week.

What sort of conference fees would you have to pay to afford his speaking fee? A zillion dollars? Canadian University Press papers must be able to afford "cement ponds" and everything these days.
