> Dear Sirs,
> It is a great happening for all the money-ed folks to be able to attend an

> world. I sometimes wonder if this is a good thing, or bad.
> I regret that I won't be attending, but I feel that the AKA has become a
> money-grabbing outfit, that has $100,000 dollars in it's treasury and
> doesn't have a plan to extend the habitats of its intended species, the
> exotic-foreign killifishes, and does not have a plan or the slightest
> inkling of donating any of their monies to establishing and preserving
> conservatories of their targeted species of foreign killifishes.
> I just can't seem to be a part of such a money-grabbing scene, when no-one
