OK, I'm going to finally see if I can get this underway.
Since Antar and I were both at the conference we have decided to take the tag team approach. I'll start the thread out and discuss a bit about the
speaker that was up and post some pictures and then she'll weigh in with her thoughts and we'll go from there.
When you first walk in the door at the conference this is the first thing you see:
Somehow I'm just positive each of them follow the rules
At one o'clock the conference started and I was getting worried. There was no sign of Antar. Still, I took over a row of seats in a good location by
laying my notes and camera and bags all over the place and got ready for what I thought for sure would be a monumental experience.
After the opening remarks the announcer, Lou Farish, informed us that the first speaker would now be the last because American Airlines had grounded
her flight. Instead we would be hearing Grant Cameron first.
Grant Cameron wasn't even scheduled to speak but I decided to take this as a bonus. A freebie if you will.
He would be discussing:
All I could do was kick back, take a picture or two and wait to see how this would play out.
To be honest, It turned out to be a fairly decent presentation.
More about Grant Cameron.
Mr. Cameron talked in length about past presidents and comments they had made on the subject of UFOs, slowly leading up to the current crop of
contenders for the oval office and where they stood on the issue.
About halfway through, Antar came creeping down the side isle, looking for a seat. I had never seen her in person or even a pic but there was no doubt
she had finally made it. She sat a few rows ahead of me to my right, The lady has a gift for snagging the best seats in the house, even if someone
else is already sitting there. (More about that later)
Back to the lecture. I wasn't aware that Obama plans to make massive cut backs in NASA to fund his education platform. I made a note to look that up.
Supposedly it's in his proposed budget. I haven't looked it up yet, it's just something that really caught my attention when Mr. Cameron mentioned
I Think I'll let Antar post a bit and see if she has any insights into the lecture.
I'll be back after her comments to finish up my part on the first speaker.
Hang in there folks, this whole thread could take a couple of days to get fully posted.
