Fire Safety Reminder. In the event of a fire, it is
vital that we clear the building as quickly as possible. You
should assume that there is a real fire whenever the fire
alarms go off and should immediately take the nearest enclosed
stairwell to the first floor and exit the building -- do not
use the elevators, and do not take valuable time collecting
up your possessions or stopping by your locker. Once you exit
the building, please move eastward down the sidewalk (toward
the lake) so that you will be out of harm's way if any windows
shatter. For your safety, please do not cross the street or
step into traffic. Failure to leave the building promptly,
or failure to follow the directions of Law School personnel,
may subject you to a Code of Conduct charge.

Joke of the week. "Last night I was having dinner
with Charles Manson, and in the middle of dinner he turned
to me and said, 'Is it hot in here, or am I crazy?'"
