Safe in Huntsville
For all those who were wondering: yes, the University of Alabama in Huntsville where the shooting occured last Friday is the same university at which Jeff is employed as an assistant professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. He knew both the shooter and two of the faculty killed (he had been working on an interdisciplinary project with the biology chair and one of the associate professors). Jeff's office is about half a mile from the Shelby center where it happened. We're all fine, and we appricate the concerned friends and family who called and emailed to check up on us. The campus is closed all this week, so it will be interesing to see how things go next week when classes resume.
