There's a large convention at the San Diego Convention Center this week -- about 20,000 people. It's the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Assocation. Some Scientology types were protesting on the first day.

I've had a lot of travelers tonight: Belgium, Australia, Poland, Germany, Anchorage, Philadelphia, Tucson, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago.
