Come on GSA, $800,000 for a conference? Man, you guys were rooked. They saw you coming a MILE away!
Vegas is a pretty coo place. SO are a lot of places. And I don't even have a problem with conferences. They create jobs, they offer a learning experience as well as sharing of ideas and such between disparate groups of people in one organization.
But $800,000?!?! Come on. If you really need help figuring out how to spend money, I am available. Seriously, I can plan a party / conference / whatever for a whole lot less than $800,000.
I would like to pin this one on "O" but I guess with all his negative bad mouthing of Vegas, he just COULDN'T be responsible.
Anyway, agree or not, I don't mind. Just think for yourself. But hey, this is just me, Thinking out Loud.
