You also won't want to miss the President's Banquet Thursday evening 
with Joe Raiola.  Since joining the Theatre Within Workshop in New York 
in 1979, Joe Raiola has worked as a solo performer, comedy writer, 
producer, director and speaker on first amendment issues.  He is now the 
Artistic Director of Theatre Within and the creator of their /"//Annual 
Lennon Tribute"/, the longest running such tribute in the world. Joe is 
also MAD Senior Editor, a title he insists means nothing since I work at 
the only place in America where if you mature, you get fired.  His solo 
performances include "/Almost Obscene"/ and the program he will perform 
during the banquet dinner called "/The Joy of Censorship"/. In this 
long-running, nationally acclaimed program, Raiola takes an 
illuminating, satiric and at times disturbing look at America's most 
hotly debated First Amendment issues, including the dramatic effect of 
9/11 on free speech. You will not want to miss this engaging and 
hilarious presentation.

The Keynote Speaker this year is Justice Betty Roberts.  Betty Roberts 
was the first woman on the Oregon Supreme Court, and was also the first 
woman on the Oregon Court of Appeals" Oregon Court of Appeals.  Roberts' 
recently published memoir, /"//With Grit and By Grace: Breaking Trails 
in Politics and Law"/, is the story of her remarkable life, and it 
describes, first-hand, the hard won accomplishments that have marked the 
career of one of Oregon's most important leaders. In her keynote session 
Thursday morning, Justice Roberts will share stories from her career and 
from the time spent writing and researching her memoir.  In honor of her 
audience, Roberts will introduce us to the intricacies of her research 
process and the many librarians she met along the way-all the more 
reason that this session promises to inspire.  Do not miss it.
