RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

The end of class (3 letters)

Spring is finally here, and to celebrate its coming, UNL is hosting a free concert by the handsome and talented Mr. Sean Michael Leonard Anderson. Mr Anderson, better known as Big Sean, is a rapper who, like most of his kind, has had some brushes with the law, specifically a conviction for unlawful imprisonment of a 17 year old girl. Mr Anderson and a friend pled this down from charges of forcible touching, second-degree unlawful imprisonment and third-degree sex abuse.

Fortunately for the future of Western culture, this did not tangibly affect Mr. Anderson's career or diminish his artistic enthusiasm; his masterwork to date, Dance Ass, begins with the memorable and evocative lines:

Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass
Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass
Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass Ass
My search routine informs me the song (Is that the right word? The rap? The oeuvre?) contains 61 instances of the word 'ass' (though this may well depend on the version), as well as 6 instances of 'bitch' or its plural, 3 instances of the word 'pussy', as well as 'Pootie Tang', 'shit', 'anus', whores, etc. etc.. It's a veritable ode to Mr Anderson's love for womankind, or at least those bits of womankind located between the waist and knees. It's sort of a Fodor's guide to the area, and best read with a copy of Urban Dictionary open, to properly acquaint oneself with its verbal nuances.

Campus feminists were unavailable for comment; evidently 'rape culture' activism has taken the week off.

Me, I'm just glad my daughters no longer attend this dump.

Update 4/15/2014: Assaults, thefts, MIPs keep UNL police busy during Big Sean concert.
