Hi Mary,

I hate to say it, but maybe it's time to get cameras in the lab.  Or at
least in the gowning room, so that entries can be tracked.    It would be an
effective deterrent to this bad behavior, which only seems to occur in the
off hours.  It's sad that it would have to come to that, but clearly there
are some people, probably just a few, who are disrespectful, and they need
to be nailed.  The number of incidents seems to be increasing.  Damaged
equipment is one thing, but how long before they do something seriously

There really should be some definite means of identifying who is in the lab
at all times. It's basic security, and totally appropriate for an
environment such as a clean room, academic or not.
