Vox Sciurorum

John discusses the mating habits of the North American tree squirrel. ``At first she runs away from the male but if she successfully escapes she stops and cries until somebody mates with her.''

Shava notes that human women act the same way.


Old Business

``Are we there yet?'' -- Shava

It is possible that Hamlet is science fiction, since it accurately describes the behavior of ghosts.


New Business

``When is the deadline for summer hours requests.'' -- KR


``I should put my request in.''

``Last Tuesday.''

Star Wars opens this week. A member and non-member who left shortly before the meeting had just come from watching it.

An alien testified to a Senate committee this week.


Future Business

War of the Worlds will premiere this summer. Again. And a Honeymooners movie without any moon references.

Move to approve this picture ( of a squirrel eating a banana. Passes 6-2-0+Spehn.
