Some years back, a former student dropped in to tell me how his life was going. That's always something I look forward to.
The young man seemed to be enjoying being a 20-something bachelor. After telling me how much he remembered my class, he revealed that he had a new teacher. Someone named Tom Leykis, who has a daily, nationally syndicated radio program.
"When it comes to women, he knows how to handle them," he said.
"Handle them?" I asked. "What does that exactly mean?"
"I mean that he has really good advice about women. You should listen to him, Mr. Kimber."
"OK", I said, "I'll give a listen."
Since then I have occasionally tuned in to Leykis on the way home from work. His program is apparently a very popular one, judging by his repeated references to a seven figure income that he earns. His audience appears to be comprised mostly of young men whose glands hold sway over their brains. Men and women call in to address the day's topic, which is invariably about how women are out to entrap, exploit and enslave unsuspecting men. His advice to all men is to use women for sex and avoid any kind of commitment.
