The choirboy

It’s always seemed to me that Larry Lessig had an unusual beef with authority, and now I know why:

As head boy at a legendary choir school, Lawrence Lessig was repeatedly molested by the charismatic choir director, part of a horrific pattern of child abuse there. Now, as one of America’s most famous lawyers, he’s put his own past on trial to make sure such a thing never happens again.

This is really quite astounding.
