HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE, UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY EDITION: The University of Kentucky has punished me in a “sexual misconduct” case, in part, for singing a Beach Boys tune covered by Alvin and the Chipmunks.

UPDATE: So I got an email from University of Kentucky spokesperson Jay Barstow, saying that the column I linked above doesn’t accurately reflect the facts. He included this redacted summary letter of charges, but I’m not convinced. There may be something juicy under the redactions, of course, but I can’t tell that because they’re redactions. That aside, there’s a mention of the song, that other faculty were unhappy with him, and that he doesn’t think he did anything wrong. His version seems consistent with this article from the Herald-Leader, and I kind of doubt they’d let him make materially false statements in a column in their paper, on a matter that they’ve covered.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Much more from Elizabeth Nolan Brown.
