"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



We have had several bomb and other kinds of threats in Austin this week, including the latest "low level," "non-specific threat" at UT this afternoon. Here's the email from campus police:

"At approximately 5:30 p.m. The University of Texas at Austin Police Department (UTPD) received a report of a non-specific threatening notein Welch Hall. Police immediately investigated and swept the building with officers and their dogs in accordance with their protocol. The building was cleared as safe at 6:15 p.m. UTPD determined that evacuation was not necessary."

I hope they won't notify me about everything. Honestly, I'd rather just not know.
