    Thank you for that. I’ve been looking forward to it for months. Sitting in Logan right now. Needed the reminder that it’s going to be well worth going through the suffering and indignities of air travel…

    I wish I could be there. I had a museum fellowship that flew me to Hawaii for a week with atheist public school teachers instead, and I have decided to choose quality company over exotic locations from now on.

    May we quote you?

    Of course you may quote me.

    Will you give us the lectures as podcasts? Please give my regards to Dr. Kopf.

    I second Bagby’s suggestion. Perhaps a CD (or even better) a DVD?

    I definitely want to come. But I’m trying to find a way to register and pay. I’ll keep looking. It will be a breath of fresh air after long suffocation to be at this event. Thanks.
