I have begun writing a column in Secular World, published by Atheist Alliance International, on the subject of free speech around the world. The column is called Life Itself, a reference to Salman Rushdie’s statement, “Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself.” You can read excerpts from the current issue, including my column, here. But the full magazine is sent to all AAI members, so join up if you want to read it every quarter.

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.
