Tomorrow Michaelyn gets into town and then Wednesday we are road tripping to DC for the Reason Rally! We will be live-blogging the whole journey and we will be joined by our atheist bear (courtesy of CASH at the University of Minnesota).
We decided on a name for him. It came from Ashley Wheeler at the University of Missouri. It’s Conan the Bar-Bear-ian. 🙂
We’ve also decided to have a fancy schmancy lunch date somewhere between Columbus and DC. Any suggestions? Also, this is your last chance to suggest places for us to stop off. After that we’ll be rolling into DC on Thursday to check out the Smithsonians with Christina, her hubby Chris, and Adam and Amanda Brown of Atheism Resource and We Are Atheism.She and I will be at the Secular Student Alliance table all day during the rally. Come by and say hello. 🙂
I will also be giving a talk at the American Atheists National Convention Sunday night at 8:15 PM. It’s about coming out of the closet, and I’ve written to the people who are afraid to come out due to the social penalties enforced by religious prejudice. I have very much enjoyed writing this talk and cannot wait to give it.
Are you going to be at the Reason Rally? Talk about it here. I hope I get to meet some of you! 🙂
