I haz returned from DC

Yes, I survived the Reason Rally. No crazed gunmen, no violent protests, no negative incidents at all. Crappy weather aside, it was awesome. The Friendly Atheist website has the best wrap-up thread I've seen, and you should all check it out.

Adam Savage's speech was probably my favorite, and he isn't even a terribly outspoken non-believer. He is highly visible in the mainstream, though, and quite popular, so I hope he can help with our image problem.

I might write a longer post with some pics that Deb and I took, at some future time. Right now it seems like my school schedule is doubling in pace, and I have to close on a townhouse and move in the next two weeks. April is going to be a killer.


  1. One of my favorite lines from Adam's speech:

    "I have concluded through careful, empirical analysis and much thought that somebody is looking out for me. Keeping track of what I think about things, forgiving me when I do less then I ought, giving me strength to shoot for more than I think I am capable of. I believe they know everything that I do and think and they still love me and I’ve concluded after careful consideration that this person keeping score is me."

  2. Welcome back! Looking forward to more details.
