Oh cool! No I just moved out here about 3 weeks ago. That sounds like a great idea! I joined the military atheists (even though I'm not in the military..but my husband is)on meetup.com but I didn't know there was another atheist community in Austin.

Well, color me impressed! That was some mighty fine writing and some very great points made. I had wanted to write a post about abortion that would kick ass on all cylinders. You just did that better than I think I could ever hope to achieve.
Thanks so much, Shine. I had a rough week. I got sick, we've been dealing with the aftermath that death always brings, the kids got sick, we had a funeral, and then I had a big exam today. Phew! I'm draaaaiiinnned. But I feel better. Closure of sorts. Your kindness means a lot. Anything new where you're at?
