      Pardon for the double post, but I think I need to add one thing. My
      post about Comicon moving to another location came from Tekkoshocon's
      website directly, about how they had to move to another location about
      demolition and reconstruction at the Radisson/ExpoMart. Tekkoshocon
      was scheduled to take place two weeks before Comicon at the Rad/Expo,
      and my thought was that if they were getting kicked out because of one
      tower of the hotel being demolished and part of the Expomart being
      torn down, chances were that they would do the same to us as we were
      after Tekko. Again, my apologies to the folks who didn't follow that
      line of thinking.
