I think it's important to note that the majority of people who occupy this building are actually staff of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. While some student may have avoided taking an unwanted exam, or somehow managed to delay submitting a term paper, the event takes away hours of productivity for hundreds of people working for a very community-oriented, mission-driven organization that helps fight cancer--a disease, which not unlikely affects people close to the person who did this. The shortsightedness of this criminal is pathetic.

That is a good point. We did hear a lot about the school, as there were reports it was in a faculty lounge, but we didn't hear as much about the other people impacted.
