Yes, yes...I'm sure that Steve Keim has to be drug, kicking and screaming, to Las Vegas. Once there he most certainly locks himself in a room and buries his head in trade magazines and graduate level finance & statistics texts. Quite the industrious man, he is.

You're right, it's pretty tough to get him here! We try to involve him in the social activities but he is just too focused! I'm glad you find time to make insightful comments on your birthday Leo!

Gitomer was great, by the way! Somebody in the crowd commented--"This guy's better than Penn and Teller!" I had the chance to meet him later in the day and he was cool. We received a signed copy of his "Little Black Book" and it's great.
