Good morning. Coffee, donuts, bagels, and cream cheese are being served in the
department lounge now.

Due to my preoccupation with reactions to the bomb in Oklahoma last week, I
neglected to mention the following (thanks to Cris Pedregal for the text).
We have a *real* table for our seminar receptions now:

Some of you may have noticed the massive new "cookies" table outside the
main office of the department. It used to be in 305, and graduate students
there offered to make it available for everyone's enjoyment out of the
selfish hope that it would take more cookies to cover it properly.  Thanks
are due to those students for the Herculean task of moving the table down
to where it is now, and thanks also to those who gave up claims to the
table so it would remain for the common enjoyment of the department.  But
especially, thanks to Jody Daniels, Michelle LaMar, and Dan Neiman for
their patient work of re-finishing the table over several evenings.  Let's
all take care of it so everyone can enjoy it for years to come.

Graduate students should be aware that general elections for GSS officers 
begin tomorrow night at the GSS meeting (7:15 in the CC), and continue on
Wednesday and Thursday 10:00 - 6:00 just outside the Graduate Lounge in the CC.
Actually, you shouldn't just be aware, you should vote ! 

I'll be posting an article to cmpsci.grads shortly discussing my
endorsements in the election (speaking from 2 years experience in the Senate).
At least one of the candidates might be dropping by for coffee this morning...
