EKU Professor 'Sliders' his Way to Fame at White Castle

Eastern Kentucky University music professor Richard Crosby does not fear the steam-grilled patty, fragrant with onions, marbleized with cheese. In fact, he eats from the White Castle menu 300 days a year. Crosby's essay about his unusual dietary preference recently earned him induction — along with nine other slider enthusiasts — into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame. The company established the hall of fame in 2001. Since then, 8,810 people have applied, and 80 have been given the thumbs-up of slider distinction.
