Just the latest way my boss is supportive (209.8)

Thanks to yesterday's mid-movie Cornell bomb threat interruptions, my boss offered to pay for me to go see "No Time to Die" again. Since I've got Regal Unlimited and it won't cost anything to go back, she'll give me an afternoon off instead. Sounds good!

I'm very glad the bomb threats here, and those at several other universities over the last couple of days, turned out to be hoaxes, or at least non-credible threats. But it's important for leadership to realize that just the threats, and the resulting slew of alerts with confusing and even conflicting instructions, were genuinely jarring to students and other community members. There's a very real mental health impact that deserves some very real mental health resources to be brought to bear.
