    [CFP is the best conference of its kind, and I highly recommend it, even
    if, ahem, free-market positions are consistently underrepresented. I
    reserved my hotel room earlier this week -- $150/night -- but rooms are
    still available. Is there any interest in a Politech gathering during the
    conference? --Declan]
