Following Hal's lead, I want to make an additional plug to any early risers
in the MTC:

I'll be presenting on Albert Bigelow Paine's *Great White Way* at the
"American Science Fiction" panel at 8:10 a.m. Friday morning.

True, that'll make Friday a looooong day for any attendees, but that's part
of the fun, right?

Looking forward to catching up with you all.
