Fire Drill. We would like to thank students, faculty,
and staff for their cooperation with the recent fire drill.
Although we were generally pleased with how the drill went,
we would like to pass along a few reminders:
*Please use the nearest staircase to exit the building
-- do not use the elevators.
*Please do not take time to gather up your belongings
-- your safety is more important than your possessions.
If you feel that you must take any valuables with you,
please "grab and go" -- do not waste precious
seconds or minutes powering down your laptop computer
or packing up your belongings. This is where we had the
biggest problem this year. Keep in mind that your delay
in leaving also delays (and thus endangers, in the event
of a real emergency) the staff members assigned to clear
*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.

Trial Team Success. Congratulations to the Chicago-Kent
Trial Team for making it to the semi-finals in the Buffalo
Niagra Invitational Mock Trial Competition, the largest
invitational Trial Advocacy competition in the nation. The
team of Andrew Cherkasky, Anthony Lucafo, Ida Nassar, and
Susan Song (three of whom were competing for the first time)
was one of the "final four" out of a total of
35 teams from 20 schools. They defeated four teams without
losing a single judge's vote on their way to the semi-finals,
where they fell to Temple in a 3-2 decision. Congratulations
also to the team coaches: Judge David Erickson, Margaret
Firnstein, and Nicholas Caputo.
Joke of the week. There once was a mendicant holy
man who walked barefoot most of the time, which gave him
large callouses on his feet. He also ate very sparingly,
which made him frail, and his odd diet gave him bad breath.
In other words, he was a super calloused fragile mystic
hexed by halitosis!
