Ivy League Professor Charged With Incest
Things just keep getting worse for Columbia University. Fresh on the heels of a frat boy drug-ring bust (including the sale of some ingenious LSD-coated candy) and straight out of what sounds like an episode of Gossip Girl, the Ivy League school can add incest to the list of embarrassing stories. Yes, incest.
According to reports, political science professor David Epstein has been arrested for having, um, sexual relations with his 24-year-old daughter. Consensual sexual relations, that is. Though Epstein has yet to respond to the allegations, his lawyer has asked the Columbia community to “support him and give him the benefit of the doubt.” Hmmm. Epstein is now on administrative leave.
Really, though, what can be next for Columbia? Please don’t let President Bollinger be implicated in a sex party with some Saudi royals.

Being married is a funny thing. We take someone we love and are so excited about and then we make them ordinary.

To say that my father died would often send an adult in search of the chink in my armor, the loose thread, the thing that would unravel me in a puddle of mourning. But there is no chink, no thread, no visible scar. My grief is ordinary and well worn.
