"No, Mr. Bond..."

(With thanks to The War on Guns)

"St. Xavier University began evacuating its dormitories and shut itself down Friday evening after threatening messages were found on a bathroom wall.

The school, which has campuses on Chicago's South Side and in Orland Park, called in Chicago police and the FBI after staff members found a new threat in Regina Hall, a freshman coed dorm on the main campus at 3700 W. 103rd St.

Menacing graffiti was first found April 5, but a second message discovered in the same bathroom stall Thursday was of more concern to school officials because it was more specific. A university statement quoted it as saying, "Be prepared to die on 4/14."

School officials said that discovery prompted them to close indefinitely and to order students to leave campus by noon Saturday.

"We stepped in immediately, given the post- Virginia Tech climate. We can't take even the most seemingly harmless threats anything less than seriously," university spokesman Joe Moore said.

He said school officials do not know when classes will resume."

The fools.

This is not to be taken lightly.

Moneypenny, get me 007 at once. Yes, now stay calm, woman. It does appear that Goldfinger has returned.
