All the years that I taught college courses, I never once had an audience this size. There were 800 people there, all seats were taken, and everyone enjoyed the extensive desert bar the presenters had set up. The cheesecake wasn't bad! Looking at all those people, the only thing I could think was that I was glad the building was metal with no chance of fire. And, I'm glad it wasn't raining. Why were all these people here, you ask? Well, money. That's pretty much it.
