I was intending to go to OLS this year because I was forced to cancel
LCA - for the first time ever - on four days notice this year.  I'm
going to be in the US anyway at the beginning of July, but didn't really
want to pay the extra cost of accommodation and travel from Seattle to
Ottawa and back.  I'd be happy to promote LCA2008 if I did go.
