Legislative conferences have better swag in the exhibits hall than do science conferences.
To whit: free beer in the hall itself. Also free condoms, free chocolate (including both M&Ms and chocolate Pill dispensers), toys from Toy Manufacturers of America, and no fewer than five versions of the US Constitution.
Also, the John Birch Society still exists, and is handing out both constitutions and DVDs inveighing against the national constitutional convention that unnamed forces are apparently agitating for. In Philadelphia.
The American Association for Nude Recreation is handing out pins. For attaching to clothing. That they don’t want to wear.
Other pins now in my possession now assure viewers that the wearer ?s pro-choice girls and pro-choice boys, and that if you are addicted to oil “try transit.”
