     Dear Mary Kay,
     The issue of our employer not paying for us to attend NSH this year
     resulted in one of my colleages leaving our company recently.
     Although two spots were originally approved in the budget, and
     travel/accommodation reservations were already made, when the
     "powers-that-be" realized that two lowly research associates were
     being sent to an out-of-state conference, we were informed that we
     would not be permitted to attend. The insult to the injury came when
     we were also informed that our not-yet-hired supervisor would be sent
     instead. Fortunately for my colleage, her new employer agreed to send
     her. Fortunately for me, the "powers-that-be" may one day see the
     error of their ways and in the meantime are loosening the purse
     strings for the purchase of our own automated immuno stainer.
