Skepticon Goes On

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to help keep Skepticon alive over the last few days. They raised about $6000 in relatively short order and, based on what I sent and what many of you said you were sending, this blog’s readers were probably between 5 and 10% of that amount. I can’t think you all enough. And I can’t wait to see those who are attending. Come by the Freethought Blogs table. The t-shirts are $18, but the hugs and the conversation are free.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster! I’ll be there with my pirate hat on.

    Whew! I was sweating that one a bit. Next year, can we pass the hat a little further in advance?
