2. Remember after one of the tornadoes Wolf Blitzer asked a woman if she thanked god they weren't hurt

Shes replied that she was an atheist, so no. It was great. Even in Oklahoma there are atheists and liberals.

4. I think she was close to Oklahoma in Joplin Missouri

which is about a stone's throw away.

But you are right - there ain't supposed to be any atheists down that way.
Poor Wolf was totally flummoxed.

5. I never knew they had such things

seems like they always pick a Bible Belt state to visit. I looked for 2019 and no location had been announced

7. Hope they have good security.

I wouldn't mind another Bible Belt state (except perhaps Mississippi). I'll keep an eye out for 2019, too.

16. They always go to the heart of the Bible belt

where the cities are actually much more moderate to liberal. Some great folks in these places and more than a few closet atheists.

10. Just heard Silverman plugging this conference on Serious Inquiries Only

I've largely lost interest in "movement Atheism" over the past few years, but American Atheists seems to have its act together. Sounds like it'll be quite the shindig.

Hell, I'd go just to listen to Seth Andrews talk. It wouldn't even have to be about atheism. He could just read the ingredients on a box of brownie mix.

12. OKC is more interesting than most of us think it is.

Not interesting enough to live there, but the federal building memorial is among the most moving I've ever seen. They have an osteology museum which is worth a visit. And I'm a big fan of Hideaway Pizza. Also, they're really pushing Bricktown as a spot for nightlife, although I'm a little old to comment on that personally. There are worse places to visit for a couple of days.

14. Believe it or not, I really was always waiting for the rest of the Beatles when I heard that name

It's kind of like how I'll scan through the channel guide and see "Duck D..." and get all excited hoping for Duck Dodgers, and then when I finish the name I realize it's just those Duck Dynasty morons trying to confuse ducks into mating with them.

I'd love something like that.
