I've known Norm for over 20 years, but haven't seen him in several. I'm guessing people get over being impressed with me before too long. Yes, it's great being around black atheists for specific reasons, but I tend to be frustrated eventually no matter what company I keep, because I think an adequate perspective on the world demands so much more. But I am reminded that this society is even more backward and barbaric than even I think it is, and of how much effort it takes to develop even a little sophistication. But yeah, I enjoyed the company of the folks I met, old and new. No complaints there.

Yes, Ralph Dumain has been here for some time, but I've been too busy to comment here or in my own group on Atheist Nexus. I did not attend the AAH conference itself, but I had a great time at the happy hour the night before. I met several people I already knew in the DC area, plus Norm Allen and some folks from Ohio, Texas, and other places.

Jean, great to hear that you will be able to attend this conference. I heard about and wished that I could attend. Keep us posted.
