REASON IN THE ROCK
9:30 a.m. CALS Main Library. Free, but donations accepted.

Out of the way, religious folk! Step aside, and let those who don't believe in talking snakes and a 6,000-year-old earth have a shot at the microphone! The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers is hosting its first "Reason in the Rock" conference on secular thought and atheism, during which rationality and science are sure to hold sway over superstition.

At the top of the bill: "The Thinking Atheist" podcast host Seth Andrews, former Pentecostal preacher-turned-infidel Jerry DeWitt, Texas Chapter of American Atheists president Aron Ra, Skepticon co-founders Lauren Lane and J.T. Eberhard, Arkansas Society of Freethinkers founder Tod Billings and others.

Also, please note: Contrary to what many here in the hinterlands might think, the "Reason in the Rock" afterparty won't include "Rosemary's Baby"-style cavorting with Satan. Why? Because they don't believe in him, either. Duh.

    Ernest Dumas writes about the difficulties faced by Gov. Asa Hutchinson in matching the achievements of Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe, even though he, like the majority of the legislature is a Republican. In short, Hutchinson needs Obamacare money, though his party rests on a foundation that hates Obamacare.

    A two-week cruise from Vancouver to Alaska was nicely timed for the August heat wave. It dipped into the 40s during my visit to the Hubbard Glacier, loudly "calving" with mighty booms of cracking ice. Here's a brief politically tinged travelogue.
  • New York Times fails again

    If one were of a low and suspicious nature regarding the New York Times' historically inept Washington Bureau, one might suspect yet another example of the "Clinton Rules" — that is, a shaky allegation unsupported by facts.
