Reading Time: 2 minutes

No Meming for a while–I’m back on the road. Seminar in Cincinnati Saturday morning, a talk to Free Inquiry Group in the afternoon, then a talk in Indianapolis for CFI Indiana. Best of all, I’m actually driving, not flying. Gas didn’t creep over $2 a gallon while I was in my study, did it?

Listening material on the road: Audacity of Hope audiobook; Radiohead; Imogen Heap; conservative talk radio of Tennessee and Kentucky; and the heartbeat of America (or, at the very least, the muffled gurglings of its gastro-intestinal tract).

Upcoming posts: The strangest opening interview question ever; Best Practices 2; Name the Brazilians!; Age stories; Vox populi (or why we can relax).

Need something to look at? I’ve added two pages in the menu: Videobamarama (a collection of videos and other graphics in support of Obama and, yes, opposed to McCain) and Why I support Barack Obama.

Reminder: the First Annual Parenting Beyond Belief Column Competition is heading into the final weeks. Your entry should tackle a subtopic within nonreligious parenting (as opposed to the topic on the whole) or a personal story from your own experience. Submissions should be attached in a Word document 600-800 words in length PLUS a bio of no more than 75 words, and emailed to column [at] parentingbeyondbelief dot com with the word COLUMN in the subject line. Because Labor Day delayed the announcement in Humanist Network News, I’ve pushed the deadline back to October 6.

See you Tuesday.
