...the last word: The Professional Association

So the attendees of the conference from my neck of the woods experienced what can only be called conference deja vu and found the conference, as last year:
over catered, over boozed and over the top with academic rhetoric.
Although the hard cold lump that was my librarian heart, was warmed and brought to a flutter when the three public librarians in attendance presented their papers, about things that mattered to PUBLIC LIBRARIANS.  Hell, so far, has not frozen over.
My colleagues are a proverbial tip of the sheer talented iceberg that lay in wait for the the next annual conference, I just hope there is a professional association still around by that time.
