You have to register by today to attend.  I'm tempted but I've got a lot on 
my plate.  Really it'd be interesting to see if the issue of Universities 
changing their stations from expenses into income comes up at all.   I 
doubt it'd be talked about at all, and if it is, then I doubt it'd be 
discussed for more than 30 seconds.   But even if it were mentioned at all 
it'd be rather telling in my book.   Especially since the interim President 
of UMass is one of the speakers.
