Worst safe word since “more”.

I’m in St. Louis today after my talk last night visiting friends, so posting will be light.  Tomorrow Michaelyn and I are driving six hours to spend some time with her family, so posting will be light tomorrow. However, Michaelyn did show me this and I felt I’d pass it along.  Glad I already asked [Read More...]

Thanks for the feedback, Peg.

More Catholic commenters.  Peg is displeased with my article about the KC Atheists getting barred from the St. Patty’s Day parade. Well, to be annoying, that would “pedantic.” And the notion that a bunch of heathens adopt my cultural heritage observation day to drink green beer, get drunk, and wear green is offensive to my [Read More...]

Back in Lawrence.

Just got back from Skeptics of Oz.  Good times.  Will write some more tomorrow as I’m presently beat and getting ready to go celebrate St. Patty’s Day with Michaelyn. I just opened up my laptop and, in the space I usually reserve for the things I need to blog about, I found: How pretty Michaelyn [Read More...]

Recovery mode.

Oooooooooooh, I am so fried today.  Last night weather was terrible all over the country.  My flight (in which I got to sit right next to Katherine Stewart) was delayed out of Madison and then about 66% of the flights out of Ohare were delayed badly, including my flight to Kansas.  Ultimately my head hit [Read More...]

Dave Muscato on International Women’s Day.

The following is a guest post from Dave Muscato, the communications person for American Atheists. Today is International Women’s Day. Here at American Atheists headquarters, we’re celebrating. Women have played a vital role in the atheist movement, and today I want to profile several great activists in the movement who happen to be women. Women [Read More...]

Trapped in DC for the night.

Oh man, is today ever rocky.  The landing in Dulles was the worst of my life.  Plenty of wind shear and lots of rocking of our tiny plane.  For those who don’t know, I’m a very nervous flyer.  My hands were so sweaty I couldn’t white-knuckle the arm rest, despite my brain sending out the [Read More...]

North Korea throwing a worrisome tantrum.

So the UN passed harsher sanctions against North Korea, and even China signed on.  Among the prohibitions against stuff that could be used to enrich uranium, there will also be a block against shipping luxury items like yachts and jewelry to North Korea. The latter was kind of a “fuck you” to the wealthy class [Read More...]

Way to represent, Polyskeptic!

Polyskeptic, friends of this here blog (or, I should say, a blog I’m friends with), were featured on Our America with Lisa Ling.  Amazingly, the story gives a positive, slantless, realistic look at polyamory.  I know I was shocked. I Love You & You… & You: How To Create a Polyamorous Family Philadelphia couple Gina [Read More...]

Rebecca Hamilton doesn’t like DoJ’s amicus brief to overturn DOMA.

Rebecca Hamilton, over at Public Catholic, is worried about the amicus brief filed by the Obama DoJ imploring the SCOTUS to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act.  Her gripe is it twofold.  First, she complains that it would muddle the laws: The act does not prohibit states from allowing gay marriages, neither does it obligate [Read More...]

Tuesday conversation: what would you do?

There are some days when I miss performing.  I’m the type of performer who doesn’t need an audience (though, like all performers, I can certainly appreciate one).  I just like being with a cast and creating a role, and falling into that character.  I always considered myself an actor who sang, not the other way [Read More...]
