He is the chosen one.

Tomorrow night, I’ll be speaking at the University of Missouri, courtesy of SASHA, the SSA affiliate at the school.  I’ll spend an hour explaining why a lot of the arguments for god’s existence suck, take some questions, and then party on into the night.  Swing by if you’re free.  Bring your congregation.

I’m staying at the house of Greg Lammers, the state director for American Atheists in Missouri.  Greg has a six year-old son who apparently told his mother this morning that I remind him of NPR newscaster, Carl Kassell.  When asked why, he said “because you think he’s going to be all serious and then he does something funny.”  My heart grew three sizes.

And then I realized that Greg’s son knew who Carl Kassell was and I didn’t.  He’s six.  And the award for parents of the year goes to Greg and Katie.  Well done!
