  13. The Repurcussion: -----Original Message----- From: Joel Griffitts [mailto:joelg@byu.edu] Sent: Tuesday, October 18, 2011 2:34 PM To: MMBio Department Subject: Re: The Official Zebra Name We refuse to acknowledge the outcome of this vote, considering all the shady, back-room, bureaucratic, cyber-optic contrivances that brought it about. We call for an investigation into this matter, and a grassroots occupation of the MMBIO office until Sylvia's honor is restored. She, after all, had no opportunity in life to make a name for herself; let's not trample her honor in death. We are the 99%. We are Citizens For Sylvia.

The Response: -----Original Message----- From: R Paul Evans Sent: Tuesday, October 18, 2011 2:39 PM To: Joel Griffitts; MMBio Department Subject: RE: The Official Zebra Name To: Sylvia From: Eminem "Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity To seize everything you ever wanted, one moment Would you capture it?
