News From an Alma Mater

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that two patrons of the University of Kentucky’s main library were stabbed in the feet by an unknown assailant:

An alert issued Wednesday evening by the university states that UK Police are investigating two incidents that occurred Monday evening in the basement of the W.T. Young Library. In both cases, the victims said a man crawled under a study desk and used something sharp to puncture their feet.

It’s a long-standing joke that a pervert in Kentucky is someone who would rather have sex than watch basketball, but apparently we may need to expand the definition.

    When I was in grad school (not in Kentucky), I remember an alert went out to women not to take their shoes off while in the library. Apparently there was some dude who was really fond of women’s shoes who would take them if you slipped them off under your desk or something.

    They also had (grainy, from video) still photos at the front desk of a few people who were not to be permitted in to the library, apparently they, uh, ENJOYED their time in the library a bit too much.
