Letter to the Editor and Public Announcement:
The Monroe Library at Loyola University will host a round table discussion on the appropriate taxonomic classification of the insects called "Berettaflies" by their creator. Announcements and flyers are being posted in the usual media and public spaces, and here for the initial discussion of the newly identified organism's possible identification. This discussion is open to all students, faculty, and the general public.
Cautions for those with concerns:
1) The students who are in the hospital have the option of joining by vidchat. Screens will be set up if they choose to send images. These may be graphic shots of injuries.
2) The soup first responder is being invited to attend, either by vidchat or in person, and does not have a fully humanoid appearance. Offensive nicknames or descriptions will not be tolerated and is grounds for immediate dismissal from the discussion. If this is a hardship for you, please avail yourself of the live audio feed alone which will be a separate link.
3) The creator of these "Berettaflies" is invited as thon may have important information towards how to properly identify these creatures and their relevant characteristics. Cooperation and full disclosure is being considered by the authorities in all discussions of official charges pertaining to the release of the Berettaflies.
4) The group known as The Spectrum is NOT invited as members have shown no relevant knowledge of the creatures or of the consequences of their actions.
