"It was two final actions in the weeks before Mr. Morrissey's death that his family and friends believe pushed him over the edge.
First, Mr. Genoways sent an e-mail message to Mr. Morrissey in mid-July, 10 days before his death (a copy of which The Chronicle has obtained), telling Mr. Morrissey that he had "engaged in unacceptable workplace behavior."

It has been nearly a year since the Mumbai terror attacks. Journalist Jason Motlagh has written a four part article about them for The Virginia Quarterly Review. The first part
is about the initial attacks and the history of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the terrorist organization responsible. Part two
continues describing the events of the first night as well as police and media responses. The third
is about the events of the second day and includes intercepted phonecalls between the gunmen and their handlers as well as recounting the initial interrogation of the sole terrorist captured alive. The last part
is about the last day of the attacks and the aftermath. The article has a large number of photographs and is a harrowing read.
