"Yes, for all you haters out there, Tucson has shown itself capable of attracting somebody other than the Jehovah's Witnesses during the summer," writes columnist Tom Danehy. He then lets his readers know how to spot a convention attendee. "If you see a bunch of people who look like a renaissance fair collided with Woodstock, where the women resemble what Janis Joplin would look like today (dead or alive), and the men look like Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider (or at just about any other stage of his life)," he writes, "that's not the AAN convention; that's the Fourth Avenue Street Fair."
