Horray for the ASA!

The American Sociological Assoc. (ASA) has moved its annual conference out of  Chicago's Hilton Palmer House. Good. Now I can attend.
“A very protracted labor dispute between the service workers of UNITE HERE Local 1 and Chicago hotels has been taking place and there is no end in sight,” said Sally T. Hillsman, ASA’s Executive Officer. “Without any sign of an imminent resolution, the ASA Council voted unanimously to move the meeting from Chicago because ASA cannot guarantee that the facilities and environment necessary for a successful meeting will be available.”
