The 2016 convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists is scheduled to meet in Durham, North Carolina this fall. It's a good thing that I can't attend anyway, because I would be hard pressed to justify spending my LGBT money in the Tar Heel state at this point.
But if it helps The Cause, very well then: let's say I am boycotting the AAEC's North Carolina convention this year at great personal sacrifice in protest of North Carolina's Transgender Bladder and Employee Wage Suppression Law. I extend my deepest apologies to V. Cullum and Jape, but there might as well be a principled stance behind my absence.
I'm sure you two will understand.
