    I’m disappointed that the harrowing incident involving the raccoon in front of Mertz was not mentioned here. What are you trying to hide, Public Safety?

      At first, I was shocked.

      And then I remembered how my household’s current search for a new living room chair is going. Let me tell you, furniture is extremely expensive. Good quality easy chairs can easily cost more then $500. So I totally believe that a moderately cozy chair in an academic building (doesn’t Trotter have chairs like that in its hallways?) could cost around $300. The overall price of furniture might be ridiculous, but given that, the price of that chair is actually very reasonable.
