For the first time in a really long time, I’m going out of the country. I’m leaving tomorrow, not coming back until early next week, and I’m probably not going to have Internet access while I’m out. I will do my best to have crazy adventures, get kidnapped, save the world, or do something worth blogging about while I’m gone.
Or maybe I’ll just drink margaritas several hours a day while getting a (second) tan.
Anyway, being this “unplugged” is a relatively new experience for me… if I’m not updating this site, I feel like I’m neglecting my child.
So in my absence, I’m letting students take over! Running the site over the next week will be Jessica Ahlquist, the high school activist trying to remove a religious banner from her high school, and Stef McGraw (and other leaders) of the University of Northern Iowa Freethinkers and Inquirers. They’ll tell you more about themselves over the course of the next week.
I had a chance to meet both of them at the Secular Student Alliance convention over the past weekend and you’re all in for a treat. They have incredibly important/relevant things to say about the state of atheism in our high schools and college campuses — and, I’m sure, plenty of other issues as well. They have complete freedom to discuss whatever they’d like. I know there will be other guest bloggers joining them, too, and I can’t wait to read the conversations when I return
Just FYI, I’ve given them full permission to delete troll-y comments. (So be nice!)
