My new place.

I’m standing on the porch holding a small cardboard box.  The wood beneath my shoes shows many signs of age and is neither painted or stained.  However, it’s a pleasant change from the overgrown grass creeping up over the walkway and giving the chiggers a springboard up to my calves. The house itself is a [Read More...]

Life changes

There will be a lot of changes in my life over the next week.  Two big ones I want to talk about here. First, I have quit my job at the Secular Student Alliance.  This has been coming for a few weeks now.  It was an amicable split and it was certainly not a quit-or-be-fired [Read More...]

Get to know the contributors: Michaelyn

As I said last week, I plan to do a post in which I interview each of the people who contribute to this blog (you can read about them by clicking that fancy “contributors” button at the top of the page).  Today is my lovely girlfriend, Michaelyn. [Read more...]

Meet the contributors!

So, this blog has three official contributors: Christina, Dr. Dave, and Michaelyn.  They’re all badass – that’s why they’re here.  I think the world should know them better. I plan to do a get-to-know-you post for each of them sometime in the near future.  Leave comments here if there’s anything specifically you want me to [Read More...]

I haz website

A few days ago the interns at the SSA, Ellen Lundren and Dave Muscato, surprised me with this page. It links to a real website.  I don’t really know what to say.  I’ve got the blog and everything, but at least the web site gives me a space to store my speaking schedule.  It also [Read More...]

People's Blog Court: Mark

So, Mark has been a vocal Christian commenter here for a while.  Recently he took a steep descent into Slimetown on LGBT issues.  He doesn’t really contribute much, if anything, to the conversation, and he mostly has just gloated over the misery of others lately and how cheerfully he supports it. I’m thinking it’s time [Read More...]

Two million views!

Today WWJTD cleared the 2,000,000 view mark. I remember when I joined back in October and had my first 3,000 hit day.  I was beside myself that so many people gave two shits what I had to say about anything.  I was ready to hang that one up as a trophy, sure that it would [Read More...]

We've got ourselves a sleuth (and he has earned ban #4)

A commenter named The Laughing Coyote (Canis Sativa) has caught me. Impressive. Instead of taking care of the mess you made, you went ‘LALALALALALALALA I CAN’T HEEEAAR YOU I’M ON VACATION!”, and then you put up a post patting yourself on the back for what a GREAT ‘ally’ you’ve been when you get back. Oh [Read More...]

Want to keep commenting here? Don't derail threads.

As I’ve said in the past, I’m very reticent to ban anybody.  However, in the last week there have been a couple posts where there was very great potential for conversation in which those of us who may not fully understand an issue could be helped to understand it better.  Those comment threads were hugely [Read More...]

I won't comment

Today the Secular Coalition for America announced their new executive director.  Her name is Edwina Rogers and she is admittedly an unorthodox choice.  This has excited some and boggled others, all of which are sending me emails asking my opinion. Here’s the deal.  I work for the Secular Student Alliance, one of the member organizations [Read More...]
