    another side of creative human’s nature ?

  • Wai kit leung says:

    I am also a former student of his. In his defence, he never stalked me, in woman’s clothing or otherwise.

  • Ungeheuer says:

    Sordid, creepy and humiliating to no end. Apropos, what became of the string quartet member from Leipzig who was detained in the US for something sordid or other?

  • bye bye says:

    Who among us has not worn women’s underwear to check if a student’s car door is locked in the middle of the night?

  • Holly Golightly says:

    A timely reminder that a society’s morality, or lack thereof, moves vertically through all the classes and professions and not just horizontally through one.
