Anthrax? Nah.

Well, we got another broadcast e-mail just now:

TO: The Brandeis Community
FROM: President Jehuda Reinharz

Earlier this morning when a suspicious envelope arrived at the President‚s
Office, the Office of Public Safety immediately notified the Waltham Fire
Department, who, along with other local and state officials, investigated
the incident. They have completed their investigation and have concluded
that the envelope presented no threat to those in the building. Therefore,
employees have been advised it is safe to return to work. The University
responded to this perceived threat in exactly the way President Bush has
suggested, with a heightened sense of awareness. We urge all members of
the community to continue to conduct themselves in that manner.

We understand that these sorts of incidents create an inconvenience and we
appreciate everyone‚s patience and cooperation.
