Hey, hey what's the fuss? We're standing up for justice!

Hey, hey it's clear to me! Our people here have unity!

I don't know, but I've been told, management's pockets are lined with gold!

Hey manamement, can you hear it? This sound is union spirit!

There's bats and rats and lice and cabs, but the lowest form of life is a union scab!

El pueblo unido jamas sera vencido!!!

Solidarity, brothers!!!

I would much prefer mystery people to put on what is arguably the biggest and best mystery conference. That's a no-brainer.

But even taking that out of it, looking at the two proposals, the San Francisco bid seems much better.

If I were going to Baltimore, I'd vote SF. Someone please proxy.

Rae

Hi,

Thanks for the vote of confidence, it's most appreciated.

I think it's cool that the Bouchercon membership will have the opportunity to choose where they want to go in 2010 - it should all be very interesting.

David J. Montgomery

Agreed -- kudos to both groups for going to the effort to put forth a bid. This is very encouraging.

I wish we knew who the proposed Guests of Honor are, as that might make a difference. (I recognize there are logistical problems with this.)

Rae

Regarding Guests of Honor, I'm talking to several people. However, it feels unseemly to me to publish names until we know which proposal is approved. I'd hate to have this conversation: "Hey, Mrs. Distinguished Author, thanks for putting your name out there, but we weren't good enough". Ugh ;-)

Bouchercon has a long tradition of honoring wonderful writers and contributors to the genre. I also think that San Francisco would be attractive to potential GoH's. So, all in all, I'm not worried about that component of the program.

David J. Montgomery

Rae, I'm with ya that it would be potentially problematic for a variety of reasons to publicize the names -- but knowing who they are could play a component in the decision. But yeah, I know why it's not practical.

Rob

I haven't looked at the proposals yet, but I'm thinking I'd much rather go to San Fran than Tempe. I love SF. Of course, you seldom see the outside of the conference hotel (or bar) at B-Con, so geographic location might not be the best thing to judge on. I do wonder if Tempe might be less expensive than a conference in SF. Anyway, I'm done speculating. I'll actually go check out the proposals now.

In 2006 in Moscow there were about 3.3 million vehicles. And in the coming years that number will only grow: the level of motorization, Russia is still lagging behind developed countries
