"...even when he mangled (or downright forgot) some of the words to “Anything Goes” early on in the set..." How funny!
This is the very reason that scat singing became so popular with the likes of Ella (remember while in Germany, she got into singers' trouble by forgetting the words to "Mack the Knife," remember? She didn't scat her way out of trouble, but she definitely was in trouble there for a while), Sarah, Sammy D., Torme, Anita (O'Day), and others.
So if you forget your lyric, heck, scat your way out of trouble! After all, you've got an audience out there, so you'd better do something!
But, look, Bennett can do no wrong, right?

However demonic the felony, everyone still gets a fair chance before the law: innocent until proven guilty, so saeth Anglo Saxon Law.

Just recently I have read that one of The Little Three, Wesleyan University, there in Middletown, Ct., has taken a step toward co-ed "fraternities."
Is this possibly a right step in pulverizing this malaise sweeping so many campuses across the nation? Anyone?

"The problem is cultural and as long as sex is commodified to the ever increasing levels it is today, it won't go away no matter what laws are passed." Truer words were never spoken, so goes the saying, I think!
So your point is spot on, Ken...!

Is this issue becoming a pandemic, or am I missing something?
