Old Acquaintances  
I met Ed Kramer when Dragon*Con was still very young, but haven't talked to him in decades. I knew he was suing the current head of Dragon*Con over financial matters, but I didn't know anything about this weirdness. I didn't remember about him being charged with child molestation, and I hadn't heard at all about the spinal injury.

I'm rather stunned and have very conflicting feelings about this: I thought pretty positively of him when I first met him, but I always found him rather untrustworthy; I was highly annoyed when Dragon*Con changed dates to conflict with the Worldcon; I consider child molestation one of the most heinous of crimes, but there is the 'innocent until proved guilty' thing, and it saddens me to read about his physical condition.

you hadn't heard about the child molestation charges? I had.

Ed changed the dates of Dragoncon over the early years to effectively kill every other general sf con in the GA area, before moving it to Worldcon weekend "because that's when he could get the facilities". Yeah, right.
