The parliamentary kerfuffle regarding the Westercon site selection appears to have been resolved. It requires a bit of parliamentary stretching, but it gets us out of a jam without having to resort to flat-out ignoring the bylaws when they get inconvenient or resorting to kludges such as "pre-printed write-in bids" (the so-called "pink ballot" solution).
Oh, and I bought tickets for the May 12th Giants-Dodgers game, so we'll miss Friday night of the World Horror Convention. The good part is, since we're staying in The City that night, we'll be home much sooner than we usually are after a Giants night game. We'll have to get there early in order to get our free orange wigs (distributed to first 20,000 attendees) as part of the latest "Orange Friday" promotion. It seems suitably silly for Emperor Norton Field.
