Lionel, good point! In that same vein, I was gratified to hear that the following Pre-Conference Seminars were finally vetoed from the final roster by the SAS Global Forum planners:
Roulette for SAS Programmers
A Statistician's Guide to Blackjack
Gambling for Statisticians
Craps; the Power to Play
...otherwise, I doubt that any of we serious SAS instructors would have a single student:-)
Lionel, best of _LUCK_ in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
