Joe - ummmmmmmmmm - first of all.... Oh wait - you're serious... Of course we would all like Celebration 'close to home' - yes it gets expensive, between airfare and hotel and other travel related expenses, but come off it the whole shtick is beyond old, and far from being amusing. The US is NOT the end all be all of Star Wars, especially not the midwest (and Indy). Yes, two of the Celebrations were held there - but the first one was held in Denver, and I haven't heard that same slavish loyalty to that location. Los Angeles works for a lot of the actors (Ewoks Rock as Kevin would say!) and for those coming from overseas, it was a direct flight. The biggest issue was the hotels (and they will have that rectified soon I hear). My (and others) BIGGEST issue with CE was the timing - it was so close to C5 we had to choose between the two. CJ was announced to late for many of us to make plans (I tried - I ALMOST could have done it though). I guess the long and short of it is, we're TIRED of hearing the same old *Cretchin* from you. You've become a posting doomsday cloud in what's a light hearted equivalent of the Merry Pranksters Bus "Further" (Which I think should be the title of the next CV rumors thread! ) We KNOW you want it in Indy. We KNOW you would have problems getting there if it wasn't (and funny enough, if you had even a *smidgen* of a decent attitude, there might have been a way to help as some of us have access to other resources) We KNOW , and I for one and utterly SICK of it.
