Recap of 2008 AAI Conference Meeting with Margaret - Long Beach, CA

I (Jesus--in the flesh!) met with Margaret and other committee members today to tour the site for next year's conference; The RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. As we strolled around the ship, we beheld the enormous 40's era ballrooms where the entertainment and sessions will surely take place. Yea, we were impressed. The QM is not just classy, it is also a ship where one could anticipate a lot of in-room celebrations where the wine flows. Trust Me, you'll need to sleep for three days after this conference is over.

Vandals egg house of local atheist

From the Daily Herald 9/23/07

The home of a local outspoken atheist was vandalized overnight Friday, police said -- with eggs tossed at the house and cars, and crosses and religious words scrawled in chalk on the driveway.

A church bulletin also was stuck on the front door.

The incident comes days after Rob Sherman's daughter, Dawn, led a successful effort to have the song "God Bless America" yanked from Buffalo Grove High School's homecoming celebration. Dawn Sherman is a freshman on the student council.
