JT: The stars are so bright down here. I feel so small. Michaelyn: You are small. But very big to me. :) More moments like that with Michaelyn, Christina, my family, and the people who mean the world to me. I want to make someone smile that big. Happy New Year, everybody. This global community [...]
On the way to Arkansas I stopped for the holidays where I got to see a bunch of fun people. We spent a whole day acting like we were five years-old, because we’re adults.
My family is comprised of die hard Razorback fans (gonna stomp Kansas State in the Sugar Cotton Bowl!). For basketball, we always head up the road to El Chico and wine and dine and watch the hogs.

Ok, everybody knows I think Tim Tebow is an undersized running back and a crummy passer (to be generous) who is not good enough at either to succeed at them in the NFL who is getting playing time and attention he never would have gotten if he wasn’t such a vocal Christian. It’s nice to [...]
Up until now, this lady has stayed completely out of any discussion of the atheist/skeptical community and misogyny/sexism. I didn’t want to get involved. I felt that people wrote enough words, discussing sexism to the point of overwhelming inanity. I stayed out of elevatorgate, convinced that other people had better, more eloquent, more convincing things to say than [...]
