Irony for 2 May 2007

Today is Wednesday, 2 May 2007.

From an advertisement in The Tulsa World, 29 April 2007, concerning a conference:

Understanding Anxiety in Children

Conference is free and open to the public.

On-site child care will not be available.

This is probably a non-profit organization sponsoring the event. Thus, their costs must remain low. Thus, no child care is provided. Practical economics at work. Duh ! Why is that a source of amuzement?

Anonymous, in response to your post, I would respond with the word "exactly" after your fourth sentence. The remainder of your post is circular.

Thank you, Anonymous and RtR for your contributions.

I happen to know the sponsoring agency for the conference is a "nonprofit", but one flush with endowment cash. Perhaps they just wanted "professionals" at this conference, and not parents with children with anxiety who really have to face these challenges, day after day.
