My Impressions of Richard Wade

I’m in Washington, D.C. at Union Station waiting for my Amtrak train back to New York after a pretty incredible weekend. I’m going to write a few posts to jot down my impressions and experiences from my weekend at the Reason Rally and the American Atheists’ annual convention. In this post, I’ll start by describing [Read More...]

A Great Day

I’m yawning my headachy head off right now, so I will probably be completely asleep within 60 seconds of finishing this post. I will have a full write up of my experience at (and thoughts about) the Reason Rally any day now. In the meantime, I just want to quickly check in and confirm that [Read More...]

So Tonight, Richard Wade and I Met Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan

Tonight Richard Wade of the Friendly Atheist and I were headed to an American Humanist Association event in Washington DC. Before tonight I hadn’t been to DC since I was about 12 years old. So we emerged from the metro station at Dupont Circle onto the streets of Washington DC for the first time and within [Read More...]

My Political Compass Score

Now, I would listen to arguments that my powerfully influential youth minister role models would make to me about the different roles men and women were to serve [Read More...]

My Neighborhood in the News

So my dad told me that his wife’s daughter saw me on WNBC news yesterday morning. I cannot yet find the clip though. In the video below they interview a guy who runs a dry cleaner on my block. I only went did my dry cleaning through him once but he was a really cool [Read More...]

Poor Crommunist

Hopefully all you read Ian Cromwell’s terrific blog, Crommunist Manifesto. He’s going to need your support in the future. Today he got the news he will be enrolled in a PhD program. As most of you know, nearly two years ago I finished a 10-year sentence in a PhD program. I know what you’re thinking: [Read More...]
