The only other well-known person I’ve heard of rumored to send shit in the mail was the germans composer Hindemith. Struck me as a peculiarly germanic form of ‘humor’ what with all the shit that passes through the writings of Luther, not to mention his legendary constipation, the discovery of his toilet, etc. Hindemith and Luther were both born under Scorpio, traditionally the sign of ‘fixed water’, ie, inter alia, sewers, stagnant pools, waste and decompostion (and of course death itself). So I figured that Brian Leiter, to be so easily fingered for such an act, should well be a Scorpio too; and he is.
“While the sender of the packages remains unknown, speculation quickly centered on Brian Leiter, a legal philosopher at the University of Chicago Law School and a famously hard-charging voice in the field, whose return address was on one of the packages.”
