Tech Ed 2007 Not In New Orleans: I Wish They'd Reconsider

This has been around for a month, but I wanted to lament that Microsoft has cancelled their plans to hold next year's major conferences in New Orleans. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities (and is a great place to ~~get really drunk~~ hold a conference) and certainly needs the business. Apparently, the airlines have not restored capacity to service the city, raising a nasty Catch-22 when it comes to the city hosting major events.
