Well, this business with the NAP notwithstanding, the Reason Rally is swiftly approaching, and it still promises to be awesome. On March 24, atheists and freethinkers from all across the country – possibly as many as 30,000, by one estimate – will converge on Washington, D.C. to send the message that we’re proud to be atheists, that we come from all walks of life, and that we intend to claim our rightful place in the democratic discourse.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, I will of course be in attendance. I’m getting into town Friday evening and leaving early on Sunday, and I’m free for get-togethers almost any time over the weekend. The only firm plans I have so far are to attend the post-rally celebration at the Lauriol Plaza Restaurant on Saturday night. If you plan to come, or are interested in meeting up at some other point over the weekend, leave a comment or send me an e-mail. I’ve already been in touch with a couple of readers who are planning to be there, but it’s not too late to join the party!
