Chuck Norris and ***holes

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Foxholes, that is. In his latest column for ClownHall, titled “Atheists in the Capitol’s Foxhole“, Norris defends your right to his religion. He’s upset that the fundie push to engrave two prayers (a.k.a. the national motto and the Pledge of Allegiance) on the Capitol Visitor Center has been met with a lawsuit from the Freedom […]

Report from TAM 7 (Part 2)

Monday, July 20th, 2009

(Comic by Cectic) (You can see the other reports here: Part 1, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5) I was sitting here trying to figure out how to summarize Friday (July 10th), the first full day of TAM 7. None of the speakers really stood out, so I roamed the web to try to […]

Report from TAM 7 (Part 1)

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

(Note: Unfortunately, it looks like I’m going to have to put in a lot of extra hours at work over the next couple of months, so my blogging will be diminished. Instead of one long article, I’ll have to write up my TAM 7 experiences in several shorter articles over the next week or so.) […]

I’m at TAM 7 right now and can’t post, so I’ve scheduled a few amusing pictures to run as cheap filler. I had this game back in the early ‘70s. Nothing about the box struck me as even a little wrong back then. Thankfully, most of us are more enlightened today.
