… so UD assumes that James Levine will remain alongside him, securely honored at her revocation-phobic alma mater, Northwestern University.

NU will apparently take your honor back if it hasn’t formally forked it over yet, as with conspiracy theorist Jeremiah Wright; but once it’s in your hot little hands, you get to keep it.

Levine, whose 1984 recording with UD-favorite Kathleen Battle singing UD-favorite Henry Purcell (Levine’s on piano), is, well, a UD-favorite, has been accused of sexual abuse.

    It is fricking about time. I’m not a musician, and I’d heard whispers about his pedophilia 20 years ago when I was in college. Then later again in grad school. Talk about an open secret.

    dmf: I actually think you’re right. I think many human males are just too hard-wired to behave this way when they have the option to, and the power differential often takes care of the rest in terms of women reporting the behavior.

    indeed, too hard to change most organizations, one of life’s more grim truths…
