    That logo should be on the NOAA hurricane tracking maps. Seems like tracking the movement of this stupid conference would make sense, just to warn anyone in its path

    I recommend that people go to this. Then, once they’ve had their fill of BS, turn around and go to the Direct Primary Care Nuts and Bolts meeting in Dallas and learn how to escape this mess.
