"The problem with Hutt slime is that no matter how hard you rub, the filth just won't come off."
―Sal Ransen, at the 343rd Conference of Despotism[src]

The 343rd Conference of Despotism was a conference. The historian Sal Ransen attended it and while there, he claimed that Xim the Despot might not have been the tyrant that he was generally regarded to be and that instead, he may have been a victim of Hutt propaganda.
