It’s not new, this Ed Kramer thing. Most of us who have been going for years have known about it for at least some portion of time. Is he a horrible person? Yes. Am I going to stop going? No.
It’s unrealistic to ask people to stop supporting something because someone somewhere might be doing something bad with the money received from it. If we did this, most of us wouldn’t have a house to live in because, as I’m speaking from experience, half of the guys who built your houses were either illegal immigrants, drunk drivers who drank on lunch break and went back to work building your house, or on some sort of hard drug.
Most of us wouldn’t be wearing clothes, shoes, eating, driving. There’s always someone bad doing something with your money in every industry.
I’m going to go to Dragon*Con, I’m going to dislike Ed Kramer, and I’m going to hope that legislation will prevail and I can go to D*C while Kramer gets what he deserves.
You are the first person I’ve seen say anything about this who isn’t going social justice insanity on it.
Should I see you at D*C this year, I feel I should get you a drink.
John Barrowman is going to Dracon*con!
