    Well you know J-Sat, if they can have cons in Cherry Hill, NJ, they can have cons in Richmond VA. [face_laugh]

    They have a nice air museum in Richmond. Been there a couple of times. One of the few that has an SR-71.

    Not really...since Cherry Hill is more mainstream city than Richmond. :p



    The real kicker is when Tinton Falls, NJ has had a Con for almost 10 years. :p

    I wonder if Arundel Mills still has that store with all the retro-type stuff; including metal lunchboxes. :)

    ::ties Wendy up in a pristine, white straight jacket:: Sorry don't have one in black, they figured the dark side had enough power in you as it was so, now, we're trying to convert you ;-)
