Earlier this week, I mentioned some of the pleasant signs that spring is returning to campus. As certainly as spring flowers attract bees, today I noticed another predictable spring occurrence. As I walked out of the Student Center after lunch, I spotted two (male) members of the Lexington Fayette-County Mounted Police just standing on the lawn. Although UK has its own police force and the Lexington officers have no real need for a presence on campus, it’s not unusual to see them in warm weather when the students’ attire becomes more abbreviated. These guys are no fools; they realize the chick-magnet potential of a couple of guys in uniform on horseback on a college campus. As their campus “duty” seems to consist mainly of hanging around letting cute women hug their horses, are they patrolling, or just trolling?
