October 29, 2002
Big staff meeting today. Went over the success of the new issue and how to improve our efforts. Had a second meeting with sales and production. Heated, petty, emotional, educational and hopeful. Lots of angst all around. Good suggestions by Jana and Carole, two wise women. The good news is we all want the same thing: a great magazine.

I forced the principals to all go to lunch with me. That would be Robert Ray, Abby, Roland, Mike and Ted. We went to El Encanto and had a good time ($62 cash, it was worth it).

Got a reservation at the Keirland Westin Hotel for this Saturday, hopefully in the Bob Boze Bell suite. Ha. Hard to believe. It’s their pre-grand opening and they’ve invited all the vendors and craftspersons to come out and have fun. Got a book signing on Saturday at 90th and Shea, then I’ll meet Kathy at the suite.

One of the images they bought is of Curly Bill (see October 7-14 entries). Robert Ray came out today and installed a new scanner and we scanned that image and I forwarded it to Bernie who is going to put it up on the site for your perusal. More will follow, once I learn all the ropes here.
