My dad went to grad school with Linda patrik. He's spoken about how gut wrenching her decision was and the whole discussion about, could it be him? If anyone has specific questions, I can ask him. He keeps in contact with his grad school friends.
He also met Matt groening (simpsons) at parties during that time because he delivered the chicago reader while working on his dissertation. He said the guy was an amusing weirdo.
