All the conference programming got moved out of the Hyatt, and over to the Marriott. Most law profs either stayed at the Marriott or a nearby Hilton or other hotels (there are lots in the neighborhood.)

Incidentally, the bedside table in my Marriott hotel room had both a Gideon bible and a Book of Mormon.

(The Medievalists do it every year, in Kalamazoo, right?) I went to a meeting in Ottowa in May once, the Carleton (Uni) Conference on the History of the Family, in 1997. It was quite pleasant and filled with tulips, as I recall!

Have fun at the 2010 AHA — I think that street theatre would be just what the conference needs, to be honest. And some decent accommodations for conference interviews.

Sorry to say, I don’t think I’ll make it there. It’s just too crazy to try to travel anywhere out of Snow City in the dead of winter, especially someplace that would require two or three miraculous connections on top of actually getting out of here properly. I still remember the midwinter departure that was delayed a few hours because the plane was too cold to start up in the morning!

Our national meetings will be late May in Ottawa, however. It’s a lovely time to visit up this way and you can enjoy multidisciplinary scholarship at the same time!

Disgusting? Absolutely. And I can say with absolute confidence that it actually happened.

I agree with Gay Prof about RYS.

We should organize mass same-sex makeout flash mobs or something, in addition to wedding, after wedding, after wedding…

Ortho and GayProf: RYS has energy. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad juju, sometimes it’s merely snarkily cathartic. It’s like The Force. You have to learn to use The Force, Luke.
