Re: [xml-dev] Re: Balisage 2017


Your decision but as a factual matter, it has a more severe negative
impact on Balisage and its attendees than the current regime in Washington.

Taking a stand, at least for me, has always involved going in harm's
way, not remotely shaming it.

Hope you are at the start of a great week!

But I don't think this is the right time to be applying for a visa, and I don't think it's appropriate to sponsor a conference held in a country that will exclude people from attending on grounds of race or religion. Sorry, but I think one has to make a stand.
