Are you guys paid to go to BEA? Or do you go on your own dime?

JC: Thank you for addressing these questions. You've uncovered a dark truth about the LBC and its members. You see, all of us are in the payroll of the big publishers. I'm flying first-class and there are hookers waiting for me in the hotel, although I suspect I'll be slightly fatigued after being pampered by the topless flight attendants. All bought and paid for by corporate interests.
Not only have they promised us limitless champagne and roe throughout the week's duration, but they have sent each LBC member a series of cash installments to ensure that we champion certain books. Furthermore, Mark Sarvas, Gwenda Bond and I will be participating in a BDSM party on Thursday night that will involve each attendant being sandwiched by two major authors who shall, for the protection of all parties, remain unnamed.
I do hope this clears up things.

Translation: LBC members go to BEA on their own dime, jc.

Also, I think you mean "attendees," Ed, not "attendants." "Attendants" are those people in white coats who assure that Mr. Segundo makes it back safely to his "hotel."

It's in my nature.

Okay, scorpion. :)

You get all my jokes. Maybe you should stop by my blog sometime. Nobody over there knows that the hell I'm talking about.

Sam, I love your new blog digs and I am sorry you won't be partying with us at BEA. You will be missed! Wendi

Thanks for the good words, Wendi. Too bad I couldn't make the trip this time.
I hope you'll be encouraging BEA attendees to pick up a copy of the Washingtonian while they're in DC. Bring two or three to the Hunt and wave them around. "Gosh, I gave away all my copies, but Kramer's is just up the street."
(Actually, I haven't even seen your article yet. My trusty news agent says he's holding a copy for when I'm back in Chicago next week. Looking forward to it.)

Always have some cash on you to make change for customers who pay with large bills.
