Skeptics of Oz was the second large scale free to attend freethinker conference in Wichita. Following the success of Rapture Day we decided to plan for another Spring conference with more speakers across multiple days. The focus of this conference was considerably different from Rapture Day, and focused more on science, skepticism, and living as a non-believer rather than dealing with religion directly. Our speakers included Phil Plait, James Underdown, J Anderson Thomson, Darrel Ray, Abbie Smith, Carol Fiore, Phil Ferguson, and James Croft.
This morning I picked up the paper and saw a great pro-vax story on the front page. The article does a great job of covering the risks as well as the current situation with an alarming trend of rising exemptions. My only real gripe is that they do the standard opposing opinion crap where they give some uneducated idiot a platform to spread stupid.
It appears that a Denver news station covered these things in a positive way. By positive way I mean exposed them for being silly crap.
