Bad news of the day

Someone set fire to one of our libraries. At least 20,000 books have been destroyed. Click here to see what's left of the Biology library. Click here to see what it looked like until yesterday.

Bad news indeed. Set up one of those amazon wish list book drives (like Pamie did: http://www.pamie.com/bookdrives.html) and help rebuilt the collection. It gives everyone something to do and feel good about.

I ask myself: Who did the arsonist(s) want to harm? The university of economics or the university? Is there any "purpose" or "manifesto" behind it or just an act of demolition? Hope they'll catch him/her/them soon.
