Hey guys, Jason here with links to all the Freethought News pertinent
to Humanists, Agnostics, Atheists, Secularists, Skeptics, Brights and
Friends!

This weekend we have another rousing round of Coffee & Conversation,
we got 22 last week, Bamboo Lounge is outstanding, and this week is
gonna be great. This is a week when EVERYTHING happened.

Saturday night join us at Bamboo Lounge at 1475 University Ave at 6 pm
for Coffee & Conversation, Saturday Night we will be going to Jim
Knott's for a Poker Night (Dollar Buy-ins to make things interesting),
Sunday help us celebrate Reid's 50th Bday in La Mesa! (All directions,
addresses, and times can be found on our calendar at
humanism.meetup.com/­184)


So for those of you interested in current events, and those who just
don't have the time to scour the interwebs for the most important news
items from a Humanist perspective- here is a list of what we are going
to talk about Saturday with their corresponding articles. A lot of
people have enjoyed the weekly blasts of news bits; especially when
they can't make it Saturday Night; I apologize that this list is a bit
heavy for this weekend- A lot happened from The Christian Militia
being arrested, to the Moscow Subway Bombings, to such wonderful
things as warrantless wiretaps being ruled illegal, to the LHC finally
up and running, and Lebanese TV Presenter Ali Sibat being spared
execution-for-sorcer­y one more day!. Check it out for yourself- that
is what your memberships and donations partially pays for: We do the
work to make staying connected with the world of freethought easier
and more convenient for you.
