I get e-mail: Mitt Romney is super likable

Sometimes I get e-mail that I have to share. Subj: FW: Why should we vote for Mitt Romney when he is such a despicable unlikeable guy? This is the man who should be President of theUnited States! A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being “likable” or that he doesn’t “relate …

The “We” of It: An Apology

Last night, another atheist leader stepped down from her position. She was a name I recognized, perhaps not as prominent as others who have taken breaks, who have found themselves preferring an indefinite hiatus to a former passion.

Oh hai!

Oh hai there! I’m Kate Donovan. It’s lovely to meet all of you too. I’m sorry to have disappeared for a bit after JT (accidentally) and Ashley (intentionally) announced I’d be writing here.

New Co-Blogger: Kate Donovan

Exciting news!  Kate Donovan, known for her writing at Teen Skepchick, Friendly Atheist, and other places, is going to be joining me here as my co-blogger.  JT Eberhard accidentally announced this early, so I’m going to post it without her official blurb or anything because I AM NOT PATIENT. I’ve been somewhat slack on keeping …

Sometimes the bad guys win

It was very refreshing for me to spend the weekend at the skeptic conference at Dragon*Con this weekend.  When you spend most of your time working in this movement online, it can lose a lot of its appeal.  In real life, most of the people I know who care about atheism and skepticism are really …
