It began as a sophomoric, attention-grabbing prank by teens in Juneau, Alaska, weeks before the 2002 Winter Olympics were to begin a couple of thousand miles away in Utah, and it snowballed into a national dispute over constitutional free speech issues.

And a roundtable discussion on that case at a 2007 regional political science gathering has now turned into a book written by James Foster. Its title is “BONG HiTS 4 JESUS,” a reference to the hastily produced banner that started the entire controversy.

Foster, the former chairman of Oregon State University’s political science department, is a professor at the OSU-Cascades campus in Bend. He has spent 25 years specializing in Supreme Court policies and politics.

Foster will preside at a book signing scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8, in the Joyce Powell leadership room at OSU.
