A request for advice

I was sent an email by someone requesting advice for their sister: she’s in a common situation, with an abusive spouse upon whom she is completely dependent financially…and she has kids. I’ve been asked what organizations she can turn to. I’m an old guy in a long term stable relationship and have never had to …

Meeting reminders for Minnesota people


This weekend, I’ll be speaking to Minnesota Atheists at the Roseville Library, 2180 Hamline Avenue North, Roseville, on September 15th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Don’t worry, I won’t babble on for 3 hours (although I probably could), there will be other organizational stuff going on.

@JamieKilstein is one screwed up guy

But at least he’s conscious, self-aware, and dealing with his problems! It also takes some guts to come out openly about it. I don’t care if he’s an alcoholic over-eating weirdo. He’s still a cool dude.

First, baseball. Next…the world!


I’m out at Midway Field with the Minnesota Atheists, and as you can see, we have seized control of the local baseball team. It’s the start of the fourth inning, and the score is 0-0. I think the problem is that Amanda Knief and Greta Christina are not cheering the team on — they were …

That’s a fine looking Horde we’ve got there


A small fraction of the Horde gathered at Women in Secularism 2, and they dismounted long enough to stand for a portrait. Mount up again, we’ve got a world to conquer!

Amongst the debris left over from last night’s late ruckus in my hotel room, I find in my possession many empty wine and beer bottles, a quarter of a fifth of vodka, one set of mysterious keys and a Shelley Segal CD. Look for me at the conference and I’ll return them to you. Except …
