The AALS Meeting is in San Diego, where Dick lived in his last years. I believe he lived on or near Coronado Island, and I know he was fond of the famous "Hotel Del," the Hotel del Coronado, which was used in Some Like It Hot, and many other movies as the epitome of a classy hotel. I propose that we all meet at the Del at sunset and have drinks on the terrace and swap happy stories about Dick. It's possible that the AALS will have the sense to have the annual reception at the Del, and if it does, we could maybe combine the two events, but if not, it would be fun to go out to the Del at sixish to pay tribute to Dick in a happy way that I think he would have liked.
