Subject: wow, are you okay?

Prof. Fogarty,

I've been hearing yuou on the news (at least, I'm pretty sure it's you). I'm praying for you, and I hope everything turns out okay. In the meantime, if you're getting bored stuck in that office, try: www.addictinggames.com. I recommend Acno's Energizer. You sound so calm, and I'm totally impressed! Keep your spirits up.

If you get a chance, let me know if you're okay.

Too busy giving out interviews to worry. Nice to hear from you notwithstanding the circumstances. Thanks for the distraction: beats work.

I appears like the police are treating this like a hostage situation and therefore are unwilling to try to enter the building. They have it surrounded, the TV is giving the phone number for the gunman to call, the mayor is on site... but it doesn't appear like the police are going to make the first move at the moment.

That doesn't make this seem like it will be a short resolution.

I'm glad Ashley and Scott are together... I know they would be crazed if they were separated under the circumstances.

Subject: Annual Meeting Discussant Assignment

Timothy,

I was to be a discussant for three papers on Wed. afternoon of the conference. Unfortunately, I only got the email asking for confirmation the evening before the deadline and had to decline. I have since been able to work out several things, conflicts, etc., and can attend and serve. I have emailed Beverly at AAA and informed her and are doing so to you now. If you have a need for me to fill in during the conference, please let me know. However, it would be expedient if you used my office email address (sslang@mckendree.edu) as well as the one on record (home langs@gvc.net). I realize I will not be listed in the catelog, but I am available and willing. I sent in my registration for the conference today.

I am currently in an armed gunman hostage situation (you will see it on the news soon) but am happy to know that you are back on the task. T

It appears that the FBI is getting ready to storm the building. They have an armored vehicle and a swat team poised.

Subject: Further Update

Unfortunately for me (probably better for the police involved) the police chief requested that no further info about police movements be shown or discussed on TV. So I won't be able to help you further with updates. It appears, at least, that they are preparing to do something soon.

Tim: I downloaded your email at home (and Retta's too). I thought I should try to be helpful and supportive in any way possible, and I called your home to offer my support. I reached your wife, who had just come home and didn't know what had happened. Please accept my sincere apologies for any negative consequences of this, and know that all of you there are in our prayers.

Everyone:

I know this goes without saying, but you are in all of our thoughts, and we want you all to be safe and come home. We are all thinking of you.

Please stay safe in the offices. I look forward to seeing you once this ordeal is over.

TV indicated two women and one man have left the building. Don't know if they "escaped" or if it is the result of some negotiations with the gunman.

Garen was interviewed on TV, but they cut him short to go to other reporters.

TV now reports that police are in the building and doing room by room searches to both rescue those of you in the building and try to find the gunman. They must be starting low and working their way up....

Relayed all the email messages about who is inside & where to police - useful for them they said - they say to you "hang tight, glad to hear you are doing OK, put your cells on vibrate"

T, Libby let me know that you're alright. I was really worried when I heard the news. I saw Puiyee run by the CNN cameras and watched it replayed quite a few times. That was rather interesting.

I wanted to let you know that you're in my prayers, as is everyone else still in Cleveland.

Just checking to see if you are still in your office or if they have moved you to the "safe room" inside the building. Accoring to the TV they have moved about 60 people from their hiding places to this "safe room".

I discovered that I am not the hide under the desk type. I am the chat on the phone to reporters type. Seven hours creates lots of time to clean up my office. In short, I handled it kind of like you would have. Thanks for the email. If I can think of any interesting embellishments, I can use it for next years SAGES class. Have a great summer. T
