Quote Of The Week
"What I discovered is that, while often more fun and interesting to be a part of, the smaller conventions don't pay enough of the bills to make sense doing. It was great meeting people and the folks who run these conventions are very hospitable and take great care of their guests, but at the end of the day it's time away from the studio and that only makes sense if the dollars roughly match up. Sad, but basic economics." -- Tom Richmond
