xmas me
I am going to repeat this, AGAIN.

The planet does, as it happens, offer plenty of FULLY ACCESSIBLE CONVENTION FACILITIES. Why the hell can't WFC use one?

Mari, I am very sorry it is happening again. I don't want to add more work to you, but I hope you and others are documenting. I am going to write a letter using this information, as I am not at WFC this year.

Hang in there.

WHAT. NO! AUGH. I'm so sorry. I am totally available to write furious letters in support of your experience.

Either they can find someplace to hold the convention that has ramps, or they can provide you with a Cleopatra-style litter and some muscley guys to tote you around. ;)

Sorry, no.

There are plenty of cheap and fully wheelchair accessible convention hotels. He'll according to last night's cab driver even in Toronto. Certainly in Niagara Falls which is not that far off.

This is a failure to think, not a decision to go cheap. When you arrive at this hotel there are three steps up to to the lobby doors and not a single sign for the wheelchair entrance (which is off to the sides behind heavy doors.) BLatantly obvious, and not a question of cheapness. No excuses,

How ridiculous. Worldcon was also in a not fully accessible convention facility this year. I don't get it...

Oh, I am sorry - I rode the elevator with you once in San Diego and never did I want to smash a hotel more just from the tired and frustrated look on your face.
