A puff of white smoke from a window at O'Brian Hall, and... UB Law has a new dean! This is very nice, because it took an ungodly amount of time during which all sorts of laundry was hung out, including the story which broke on Sunday about how one of the five finalists was just indicted for embezzlement. 

Here's my question: if you are the press contact for the University at Buffalo School of Law and the Buffalo News calls you to ask about the indictment that's just been handed down how do you not say, "Listen, we are about to announce our new dean. I'll tell you who it is now, if you'll sleep on the other story for a week."? In a week the indictment story becomes a non-story, and the reputation of the law school avoids another nick.
