TIACA Opens On Election Day USA

chuckles for November 3, 2022

     The International Air Cargo Association TIACA Air Cargo Forum (ACF) begins on November 8 Election Day across the U.S., which means to attend the first day of TIACA, unless you can figure out how to get to an absentee voting center, how will you be in two places at the same time a week from this Tuesday?
     “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting,” President Frankie Roosevelt declared.
     The American custom of weekday voting began in 1845, when Congress passed a Federal Law designating the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November as Election Day.
     So why did the organizers of Air Cargo Forum and the trade show company schedule a U.S.-based ACF Tuesday November 8 of all days ?
     Couldn’t they have waited one day and launched ACF on Wednesday November 9?
     Perhaps in this “global village” we all live in these days, planners' first rule might be brushing up on their local calendars?
     You can bet that the Air Cargo Europe show and other events that this mega-trade show company puts up would never open on say October 3, which is German Unity Day!
     It would be unthinkable to open Air Cargo India or Air Cargo China during Diwali Festivities or Lunar New Year Celebrations.
     So pay attention Air Cargo Forum, and sharpen up here. The country that brought the rule of law to the rights of the common man, the one that is at the top of the list of places in the world where people want to live, witness in 2022 more than 5 million people have waded across rivers and made every conceivable effort to get here, wants and needs a day to vote.
     Here is a plus of good timing.
     Next week suppose the ACF event ended on a Friday?
     Might encourage at least a few attendees to weekend in Miami and take in a truly wonderful and culturally outstanding "in town” experience.
     A trip to Miami Beach without a stop into Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab, a fixture there since it opened in 1913 and Woodrow Wilson was President, is like a day without sunshine.
     Elsewhere Miami City Hall is located at Dinner Key in the exact building where Pan American World Airways launched its Flying Boat Base during the 1930s.
     Today that beautiful Delano & Aldrich-designed building, the original passenger terminal near the water serves as Miami City Hall where the City Council meets in the old passenger lobby.
     Later repair to a breathtaking National Historic Landmark, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
     Vizcaya is a former 1916 waterfront estate home with 32 decorated rooms and 10 acres of formal gardens.
     Finally enjoy drinks and stuffed eggs at @Michael's Genuine, a great neighborhood spot and the best restaurant in Miami.
     And if you can, don’t forget to vote November 8.
