if a person wants to go to ExCeL in London's Docklands, which airport should a person fly into? i realize that a person with patience could fly into any of them, but i will have patience and also toddler.

i am looking to talk to someone who has run childcare at a us or canadian worldcon. chicon's webpage for childcare currently says "content to go here", which makes me think that this particular duck is not in the row yet. anyone know who's been doing that or is doing that for chicon?

yes, this is sf author joel rosenberg. yes, he used to go to minicon. i believe he's given it up recently. yes, he was one of the major drivers of mn-stf schisming *again* over guns.


MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minneapolis man and author of a conceal and carry book was arrested Wednesday, accused of bringing a dangerous weapon into a Minneapolis City Hall on Nov. 5, according to police.

Joel Rosenberg, 56, allegedly walked into the City Hall with his wife for a pre-arranged meeting with Sgt. Bill Palmer, who is the Public Information Office for the Minneapolis Police Department.
Police said they later learned that Rosenberg is active in posting commentary on many web logs and Internet sites. Police believe he wrote an open letter to Palmer, which said, “When you stupidly lunged at me to grab my knife and gun, you didn’t watch my hands. One of them was on my back-up gun; the other was within an inch of my back-up knife.”

to my friends who have conceal/carry permits-- this sort of shit is why i don't believe you when you explain why conceal/carry permits are a great idea and everyone should have one.
