Changing of the guard

Hey, this is a surprise: Phil Plait is stepping down from the presidency of the JREF to pursue a career in television. Phil, I’ve seen your picture in the skepchick calendar — television isn’t ready for that kind of exposure yet! Well, maybe on Skinemax.

All hail the new president of the JREF, DJ Grothe. He’ll be a good match for the organization, and I look forward to future amazing meetings.
