Behold, Brute Reason!


There’s a new blogger on Freethought Blogs.

A month ago I got a text message in all caps from Miriam, head blogger extraordinaire at Brute Reason. (Text messages from Miriam are almost always in all caps.) This one said:

KATE. THEY ASKED ME.

What followed was ten minutes of me leaping about and shrieking on a train platform in Chicago. At the other end of the phone, she sounded stunned.

A week later, Miriam was on my porch jumping up and down. “It’s official!”

See, I’m pretty familiar with this new FreethoughtBlogger. After all, we live two blocks from each other, attend Northwestern with a major in psychology, and are on the exec board for NU’s Secular Student Alliance. Oh, right, and she’s one of my best friends.*

Blogging with coffee (for me) and energy drinks (for Miriam) at 2 a.m.

I actually read Brute Reason (ruining your fun since 2009!) months before I met Miriam (Fun fact: we met at a church.), mainly for the mental health content. Her archives aren’t up, but be assured you’ll like them all. Now go say hi!

*Before someone yells hivemind, I’m not on the panel of people selecting new bloggers, nor am I part of the decision-making process for writers. And if you’d read Miriam’s writing, you’ll see why she was picked in the first place.

    Psh. Only a hivemind could make decisions this good so consistently. I AM TIRED OF YOUR LIES!

    I just leaned over and told Miriam this, but for everyone else, we met at an interfaith event at a non-denominational church.
