Well, folks: The Storm World talk in Grand Rapids went quite well--Ed Brayton was there, it was fantastic to meet him for the first time, and he's got a post up about my talk entitled "Hurricane Mooney." The oddness of giving a speech about hurricanes in Michigan was not lost upon me, but I had an attentive crowd of some 140 people, thanks to the great organizing of the Freethought Association of Michigan, which is a really stellar group. I was very impressed. And just to make the talk locally relevant, I told them all about "Hurricane Huron" of 1996. Check it out. It really happened...but if you're going to call it a "hurricane," you have to preserve the scare quotes. In any event, work now calls me to New York, but Sheril is around....more later.
