Holding Out for a Hero

It's not very often I can say I am eagerly awaiting a room to catch on fire. But in this case I am. The class and I are in Speaker's Circle, surrounded by students and firetrucks. I'm ready to see this sample dorm to catch on fire and then watch the firemen go to work. More details to come as the action gets underway.
