I'll have more observations on the preparation for this year's event a little later in a separate post.
Trust me when I tell you, based on my experience last year, the actual discussion won't start until after about 45-60 minutes after the ritual community/crony kibitzing starts at 6:30 p.m.
Once it actually starts, I plan on asking some questions at the forum that I think will make me seem, for a bit, like a bull of in a china shop.
But this being Hallandale Beach, more like crashing their poorly publicized tea party.
And don't forget, after the special encore with new footage at 8 p.m., the LOST season finale, "There's No Place Like Home" is from 9-11 p.m., so don't stay at the meeting after 8:30 or you'll be sorry!
The big rumor that's gaining currency, courtesy of the estimable Michael Ausiello, still of TV Guide, but soon to be of Entertainment Weekly, http://www.tvguide.com/Ask-Ausiello/080528 is that THREE, count-em THREE original cast members will go buh-bye for good tonight.
And where the hell exactly is Penny Widmore? http://tviv.org/Lost/Penelope_Widmore
