Maybe we could do a program on "Worst idea ever for a MAGIRT-sponsored ALA Program"? Since this says "MAGIRT-SPONSORED" it doesn't necessarily mean we organized and carried out the program, right?

I started this message thread with the expectation that other people would post even worse ideas for programs.  Surely someone can top mine!


Let's see -- Learn how to write driving directions that will ensure no one will get to their destination!  We will teach the art of obfuscation.  The directions will be technically and literally true if carefully dissected, but are certain to send your victims far, far away instead.  No worries about unwanted guests or surprise inspections!
