A tweet about the event from one of it's co-sponsors
A photo from the actual event.
A note from a reader: Hey Marta, (my husband) and I were there and there were probably around 200 people in attendance. The photo, obviously, shows a small portion of the home where Janice spoke - not showing the other side of the LR, the patios on either side which were packed.
Fair enough. The record stands corrected. I was not at the event. Clearly, the conclusion I drew from the evidence I had was wrong. I know this because you, my faithful readers (yes, all twelve of you), let me know this in no uncertain terms.
Which brings me to this point (warning: teachable moment coming up). A blog like this is only effective if it's accurate. My goal is that you can argue with my point of view, but you can't argue with the evidence I use to back up my point of view.
To that end, I encourage my readers to keep me honest. If I ever post something you don't think is accurate, and can back your opinion up with verifiable facts, I will correct the record.
I'm not so proud that I can't admit a mistake. That's why I'm leaving this post up, with the correction, instead of wishing it into the cornfield. As far as I'm concerned it's a win-win for everybody.
