Well that’s flattering…

I’ve always felt my strength as a writer/communicator is my lack of any discernible genius.  I’m serious about that.  I’m just smart enough to mostly understand what the super smart people are saying, but still average Joe enough to argue concisely in common language.  That’s what I suspect anyway…

So when the Madison Freethought Festival put out a tweet asking who should be invited to speak at FTF3, I was floored to see this tweet:

A guy requesting Laurence Krauss, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and me.

There can be no false modesty here, only a sincere admonition that my name does not belong among those other two.  Still, it was a wonderful moment of flattery that I will show to mom and dad to make them proud.  :)

Thanks, Mr. Kayssi!
