Brown’s Bedroom Bandit

Starting to get those first-round-of-midterms blues? Foucault and Saussure got you down?

BlogDailyHerald’s got the medicine to pick you right back up again. Enter “The Bedroom Bandit,” the latest literary exploit of Richard Jeanty (“Author of Sexual Exploits of A Nympho I & II,” according to the novel’s cover).

As for Rice, he didn’t just walk the walk in getting in touch with his feminine side. “I don’t know how they do it,” he said. “When I left, my bra itched, my feet hurt, and my ears hurt from the earrings.”
