      Jason,
      The academic analogy of the Istari is brilliant.  But in academia, unlike Tolkien, Saruman would bring in a brand new administrative assistant. Prof. Mouthofsauron, and that person would be named the new department chair.  Saruman would be elevated to newly created post, the Academic Vice-President for Lies, Damned Lies, & Statistics.
       
      Gandalf, meanwhile, would be demoted to teaching Comp 001 at nearby high school adjunct campuses.  His only lit offering would be Orciah Poetry taught in the men's maximum security prison on the outskirts of Isengard.
