The 30-Second Drill is to provide a brief drill/discussion subject that can take no more than 30 seconds to read and reply to. A second purpose is to learn the differences and similarities of the answers across the viewing audience.
To participate answer the three questions based on your department. Include your department’s state (MD, PA, AZ) in your reply. Don’t reply to other reader’s comments; they will be removed. There will be a followup to each drill posted afterward where further discussion can be done.
