Setting aside the properly-anonymous comment that sending librarians to ALA is a waste of money (a comment that I thoroughly disagree with), to the best of my knowledge, both Midwinter and Annual are profitable.
I also have to wonder why someone who doesn't give a damn about a poll finds it necessary to comment about not giving a damn. Is there a shortage of things to comment on lately? Say, maybe you could join the group telling me what topics in librarianship I should not care about! That sounds like fun!
And a combined BEA/ALA conference should mean lower dues for ALA members (since funding that second conference must cost a fortune). Note I said SHOULD.
If more taxpayers understood the money wasted sending public librarians to ala conferences they would demand even more cuts to library budgets.
Better yet, why is there not a "I could not care less/who gives a rodent's derriere" option?
...not an option. Vote!!
Why isn't there just a "no" option?
