A statistically improbable polymath's views on politics and culture.

Friday, November 14, 2003
When I first posted about David Auburn's previous career as a writer of Jane Austen-inspired erotica, I worried for a bit on how it would affect the public's perception of the University, as well, of course, as Auburn's chances of winning an Oscar. However, I needn't have worried. There's a long tradition of Chicago graduates writing the occasional salacious piece--from Nobel Laureate Saul Bellow to America's favorite priest/sociologist/romance novelist (Fr.) Andrew M. Greeley; even Christie Hefner, regent of the Playboy empire, matriculated here. Besides, it looks like Northwestern's beating us in the sex scandal department. (Via The Morning News)
