Montana Governor's Conference on Tourism & Recreation

What is that?
Oh, it's just another of those invitations to the Montana governor's conference on tourism.
Oh, that.
Yeah, I can't figure out why I should bother giving them the hundred something dollars they want just to be graced by the governor's presence.
I went to one of those one year. It's not worth it. You're right, they charge all this money just so you can go listen to them tell how wonderful the tourism board is.
I figured as much.
They should be paying us to go there. What they don't get, what they don't understand is that they wouldn't exist without us. We have been here for a hundred years. We have been bringing tourists to Montana longer than there has been a tourism board. The tourists don't come because of the governor, they come because of us.

Too true... Always good stuff too read.
Hmmm...this seemed as good a post as any to leave my first comment since I will, in fact, be attending the conference of which you write.

Anyway, thanks for the AHC comment and concurrence on the sad state of concerts in Montana. I hope you weren't being sarcastic! ; )
