Okay, that's it for now. If any of you are still reading.
That wasn't terribly long. I was expecting a book.
Actually, with your con experiences, I think you should write one. Might have to change the names of a few characters though.
Write it now, wait to publish it for a few decades.
But write it while you can remember it and just wait to publish it until no one will yell at you if you share something un-flattering.
