    I'll be there, assuming I don't get the boot! I'm planning on bringing my lovely wife, as well. Should be fun. I, too, enjoy Galveston.

    I haven't decided yet. I'm on the RIF list, so if I go it'll be on my dime. Plus, I only need 2.25 credits. Worth it? Not really.
    But meeting other Cyburbians?? That would be great!

    I'll be there and will possibly be presenting in both the planning commissioners track and the disaster recovery track.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Conferenced out this year, although I may head down to attend the planning director pre-conference sessions. That is, if I'm still in Texas ...

    I don't think I can make it this year. Doesn't look likely either budget or time wise.
