The week's news at a glance.

New Haven

Bomb-sniffing dogs and uniformed guards patrolled Yale University during graduation exercises this week, days after a pipe bomb exploded in Yale’s law school. No one was hurt in the blast, but an empty classroom and an alumni lounge were damaged. University president Richard Levin told graduates that the mysterious attack, along with global events tied to the war on terrorism, were reminders that they were living in “uncertain and revolutionary times.” “You will need all the intelligence and wisdom you can muster,” he said. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, a guest speaker, warned students not to “sit home in the basement” in fear. “Get on with your lives,” he said.
