RE: The fake war on Christmas continues.
I am a member of the Lincoln Atheists. I can say firsthand the media coverage is much bigger than anybody expected. This, I think, is both good and bad. Good that it's getting the attention the powers that be wanted, bad because I've volunteered to fill a couple hours at the "Ask an Atheist" booth.

I am quite nervous.

Yup. Be pleasant. Don't allow yourself to get dragged into a controversial or adversarial situation. There will come a point where there is nothing you can say without calling the idiot a moron. That's when I cross my arms, raise my left eyebrow and stare at them without saying a word. They leave.

Laugh out load The infamous "Dad Glare"! When my sons were younger and cutting up at the dinner table, all I had to do was give that look, and the miscreant activity ceased on the spot. When I taught (high) school (math and physics), it was called the "We are not amused" look that the queen of England used. It worked there, too. But those kids were pretty tame, it being a private school that the parents were paying big bucks for.

RE: The fake war on Christmas continues.
It has turned out to be a wonderful display by 8 distinct groups. Very well put together, I'm happy to be a part of this event.

Wish you all were here. I'll be sure to take many pictures.
