I went to the Reason Rally and all I got was four T-shirts and soaked in rain

We ate poor Kramers out of house and home!

Well, no, actually, I got a great deal more than that. But you try coming up with catchy blog headlines late at night. I certainly didn’t fly out to the thing with no intention of writing about it, so allow me to add a brief recap of my trip that you can add to the …

Never let the facts get in the way of a good conspiracy tale

My mom visited last weekend.  She is currently renting a room to a housemate, and it seems that the housemate is a bit inclined towards conspiracy theories.  One afternoon at lunch, mom told me that the housemate informed her that Barack Obama had just signed an executive order seizing control of all resources in the …

AXP Reason Rally breakfasts: final meetup plans

The trick with these, gang, was finding a place accessible to everyone (even if “accessible” means “Metro rides” for part of it), that would be tasty, reasonably priced, and a good chance that everyone who wants to turn up can. To this end, recommendations from locals and others familiar with DC were invaluable, and I …

Open thread on episode 753 / Rally update

Today, Matt welcomes guest David Smalley, host of the podcast Dogma Debate. Pop that popcorn and settle in. Also, our illustrious host should remember to remind everyone of my attendance at the Reason Rally, coming up very fast. (To think I fly out Thursday…what to pack!?) At the moment, I am leaning towards a Saturday …

And while we’re on the subject…

…what the hell is the deal with religious zanies getting naked in public and making spectacles of themselves? I miss the old days, when loons were just a little fashion-conscious and at least put some effort into sandwich boards and tinfoil hats.

Evangelical narcissism: or, Jason Russell really is an epic douchebag

Dude, you are SOOO radical! And I bet you still haven't found what you're looking for!

Haven’t really talked much about the whole Kony 2012 flapdoodle here, because up until now, it didn’t seem to be much of a religious issue. But looking over the curious case of Jason Russell, self-appointed savior of Ugandan children and flamboyant public-naked-meltdown-haver, it is necessary for me to prologue this post in order to give …
