[MB] Do you really think you/we can judge what things will be like over 3
years from now?    What specifically does the virus have to do with whether
or not we have a meeting in the US in 3 years?    There's nothing to say
that other countries won't have other restrictions of various sorts in 3
years time.  Personally, I think these changes are just perfect.   If the
meeting was moved to 2021, then maybe the concerns are valid, but not
2023.  [/MB]
