Why Reason Rally?

I have posted so much about the Reason Rally in the last few weeks, but I have one last thing I want to talk about: why I care so much about this event. Many of my friends talk about this event as a rallying of the troops, a way to build morale and group identity …

DBAD Follow Up

Why do I suddenly have the urge to build a giant phallus out of straw? – Tracy I am getting a fair amount of attention from the skeptic community for my post about Phil Plait’s Don’t Be A Dick Speech.  I don’t really have much more to say than what I said originally. The really …
