I like MLA. I pay my fees; I get a badge. I see old friends. I stay in a nice hotel. I get a laugh out of critical theorists getting it on in the registration line. The parties are good. The book exhibition is reason enough to go--even to Chicago in December. But then I teach a good deal of literature in addition to HEL and grammar/syntax. But a separate meeting somewhere else for all the exec/committee stuff is OK. And the Philadelphia plan sounds good. Uhmm, mussels at Walt's on 2nd Street--I hope it's still there. Vats of olives in the Italian market. Wear boots.
