these geekish conventions always bring good money of people willing to spend cash on tickets and other fun stuff. Not my bag, but good people.

I can remember my trips to KC over the years. It has been interesting seeing it morph into the Twilight one.

Maybe if Sly is still around they can get him to dress up like Darth Vader and do a little soft shoe for us.
