I’m extremely sorry to be missing the Reason Rally (doctor’s orders). My impression as an outsider is that America is close to a tipping point. The Reason Rally could raise consciousness past the tipping point where politicians will suddenly realise they’ve been sucking up to the wrong lobby all these years. Please come. I wish I could be there too.

I wish I could say he’ll be there in spirit, but… you know.

He had a minor stroke in early February that prevented him from going on a speaking tour, but it was unclear how serious the problem was despite doctors telling him he would have a full (or near-full) recovery.

Dawkins’ 75th birthday is on Saturday.
