Action Sports Retailer has canceled what would have been its first back-to-school show, scheduled for next month. The magazine had invited surf-wear makers and other companies that sell their lines to department store and specialty shop buyers.

"I don't think they had time to work it into their '93 budget," she said.

The location is identical, but any similarity between this convention and the Republican one a few weeks ago ends on that note. Instead of delegates clothed in red, white and blue finery, there are humans sporting tattooed craniums, gas masks and 87-pound suits made from pennies. In place of helium balloons, there are silicone-inflated babes in bikinis. And instead of CNN and the Washington Post, there are journalists from WIG, Hot Lava and Tongue magazines.
