You might want to hear from other cult members attendees about whether Nebraska's infrastructure can absorb that kind of humanity crush. (Kinda like trying to navigate Waikiki during the marathon.) One of these days the complaints about the crowding, the lines, and the lack of services are going to generate more publicity than the actual meeting.

This year I'm waiting for bootlegs of the annual meeting video to start showing up on YouTube.

After my week in San Antonio, I can imagine the scene outside the convention center while the paramedics are trying to thaw your frostbite: "You're frum Hawayuh and you're vacationin' here?!? Buddy, where's your passport?"
