We've finally gotten a bill before Congress designating the Monday after HOPE as a day when one doesn't have to go to work or school. Many employers already recognize as fruitless any expectation that work will get done on that day. So don't feel bad about staying late on 07-24 in order to attend our final session of the conference - the infamous HOPE closing ceremonies. This is where we go over what went right and what went wrong this weekend - and where we let you know what we had to go through in order to pull this whole thing off. And, if we're not totally fed up and disgusted, there may be talk of a sequel.
