Hey everyone! Our outreach department and friends are as busy as ever and getting ready to leave for Washington, D.C. to attend the Reason Rally. Center for Inquiry is a major sponsor and one of the founding sponsors for the event, so we are glad that so many people are planning on going. Also, I want to say that I am happy to see so many organizations working together. We might not want to admit it, but sometimes it can be difficult to get groups to coordinate (does the expression herding cats mean anything to you?), especially in such a big way. This is going to be epic!
So I watched a really crappy movie last night. Not only was it a crappy movie, it was a remake of a crappy movie. Perhaps you have heard of it? The abomination goes by the name Footloose. The original from 1984 featured Kevin Bacon and by this feature alone it is only marginally better than the one I saw last night. Anyway, there was a song that is featured in both movies originally by Kenny Loggins that goes by the same name as the title of the movie and is today's Music Monday song of the week!
Sorry to our regular readers about not posting many blog articles for the last week. Several of our outreach staff and I went to Orlando for the Moving Secularism Forward conference, and are still catching up. I took some notes while I was at the conference and want to share what I learned about Dr. Rita Swan.
We're back! I appologize for my absence last week. The good news was that there was an awesome post last week on Monday, so go check that out if you get a chance. I hope that this week's Music Monday song will bring a smile to your face to make up for your disappointment from last week.
Center for Inquiry recently announced the two intern positions that we will be filling for this year. I am happy that so many students have applied already, but I want to encourage all potential applicants to look into the option of interning here. It is a great experience, a lot of fun, and a lot of important skill-building work!
