Re: Re: [skeptics-147] Huge Psuedo-science Expo in SF May 1-2

Kary, Sterling, and Tucker,

Great ideas!  Letting crazy pseudo-science practitioners speak for themselves and putting the video on YouTube would be more effective (and positive) than if skeptics simply pooh-pooh questionable beliefs.   We probably can't get Jay Leno to interview pseudo-scientists, but I'm sure Kary will do a great job. 

Would you like to meet there?  I hope I can obtain some free passes. 

I could also make some skeptical brochures with information on acupuncture, homeopathy, etc. from   If anyone else has brochures or flyers that are already printed, please bring them.

Maybe Cathleen can review our new brochures on acupuncture to see if they answer her question about the difference between a personal experience versus a double-blind, placebo-controlled scientific study.
