Blessings upon blessings

All but one of my discussant assignments at SPSA have apparently disappeared without any notice to me—which is just as well, since that allows me to postpone my arrival in downtown New Orleans until January 4th… garnering about a 50% reduction in hotel rates, since now I can stay at the Hilton Garden Inn I stayed at a couple of weeks ago for $99/night and get free breakfast due to my HHonors perks, instead of the conference hotel at the significantly above-market $155/night rate; one fewer night to pay for; and avoiding the crush of the Nokia Allstate Sugar Bowl to boot.

C’mon Chris, you need to help NOLA recover after Katrina. I mean, look at all the Saints game I’ve gone to, oh wait, that’s right, I refuse to spend a cent there while Nagin is still in charge. I am, instead, going to Dallas to see them play the Cowboys. Here is the Memphis airport and it’s constant whoring out to NWA at its finest: Annie, Marshall, and I are flying Southwest out of Little Rock (Marshall has to do his Christmas shopping, after all); our total price, with taxes, for the three of us is $342. About 80% of me and only me could have flown out of Memphis for that.
