AFT Convention in Seattle Day 0

July 7, 2010 pm31 6:50 pm

I’m at the AFT Convention in Seattle. So far? A bag, a nametag, a free t-shirt.

I’ve seen a dozen people I’ve met before – half from “Back to School” (the AFT summer organizing events I’ve worked at the last two years in New Orleans and East Texas), plus other familiar faces.

A woman from Downstate Medical Center thought I looked like a movie or tv star, but her friend thought I looked like a colleague of theirs in Basic Science. Do I look better than usual? or smarter than usual?  Either way, I’m ahead of the game.

I have a new delegate orientation in a few minutes.

And I’ll be back here, blogging at least once a day until it’s over.

    I’ll be very interested in hearing about what Bill Gates has to say and how he’s received. Is the event at the WA convention center?

    Isn’t it true that you have to take a loyalty oath to unity before you can go to these conventions?

    Why can’t you answer directly? Where I live has nothing to do with the question I asked.

      I note, reading your latest blog post, that this was not a question, but an accusatory statement.
      1 you are dead wrong and
      2 go away
