Oh, I don't know.  I think anything people would pay to hear me would be too
cheap.  I think it actually depends on the honorarium they give the speaker.
 And it also depends on the speaker.  Olcott now has the policy of having the
last Thursday night program of each month free and when Vonda Urban comes to
speak she not only insists that they not charge admission, she gives away
books to everyone who walks in, but then she has lots of money and doesn''t
need to speak for her supper.
