St. Louis Denouement

St. Louis LogoFollowing up on my previous posts (links below):  St. Louis Interlim Dean Tom Keefe, a local personal injury lawyer who was appointed by the university president following the abrupt resignation of Dean Annette Clark, has resigned after a series of controversial remarks:

  • Does that sound like somebody who is [University President] Father Biondi’s butt boy?
  • I've been drunker than ten big Indians.
  • Keefe asked a law student if she was "wearing any panties" at a school meeting. He then allegedly asked another girl if she would be “getting stuffed” at the school’s barrister ball.
  • Life is a bitch. If it was easy, we would call it a slut.
  • Pot's gotten a lot better than when I was in law school.
  • There is beer and wine available---light snacks---and ganja for our younger faculty and the old hippies.
