It is my sad duty to inform you of the death of Pat Nally, assistant to the dean in the School of Business. Pat passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon. Pat has been a vital part of the School of Business since 1985, and will be remembered for her commitment to students, and her spirit of collaboration and cooperation.
I know that she will be greatly missed, and I am sure the Ithaca community joins me in sending our condolences to her family and friends. Information on any planned services is not available at this time -- I advise you to watch the local paper for more information.

We need to know! It's hard to think of a popular TV series which has not at some time made reference to or parodied something from The Twilight Zone. References abound in feature films as well.
