Ovid has inspired many great retellings of the haunting story of Orpheus's journey to the underworld, but contemporary playwright Sarah Ruhl reimagines the myth from Eurydice's point of view.

Submitted on behalf of Kathleen Rountree, provost and vice president for academic affairs.
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.
