Joan, if you like the West Wing (obviously), and you dig Aaron Sorkin's work (and you have HBO!), you should check out his new series, The Newsroom.  It's excellent stuff.  If you DON'T have HBO, I can steer you to some YouTube videos to give you a taste.

Thanks Joan, I know I can come here for worthwhile responses.

Joan, as always, you are more than welcome to reprint that last piece on Facebook.

Dumb question: since I don't have a Facebook account and I can't have a look myself, has their been much (if any) response to any of my pieces that you've put up?

Hi, again!

The muse seemed to like Obama's 2nd inaugural address ... 'cuz he came up with this.  I wondered if you had seen it and/or had a reaction.

Joan, you asked me about K.    He ? (the name sounded female to me ?) had joined Epicurean Atheists a few days ago and then just disappeared again only a short time later.

Joan, what is worse about the whole situation is that humans have the capacity to FIND answers, but a critical prerequisite to do so is to acknowledge that You Don't Know The Answer First!

Enjoyed your reminisce comments on my post. Have you read Nature Wars by James Sterba? It contains chapters on bird feeders and letting the cat out--pros and cons. Also, no chickens for me. I despise their actions. They're only good for eggs and eating (in my humble opinion).

Joan, here is my review of King Leopold's ghost.  You inspired me to read it.  Amazing book.  Thank you.

Hey, Joan.

Ran headlong into a little something this morning and as a result, I wrote this.  I think it deserves your attention.

Thanks for the welcome Joan. I changed my name from FrustratedAtheistDad to this one to make conversation easier.

My frustrations lately have revolved around my in laws and their views on the holidays with my children. Although I have wanted to get in touch with fellow non believers the Holidays had a way to push me over the edge. thanks for the welcome.

Anyway, Thanks Joan, I haven't a lot of time for this forum at the moment,

better get back to work and studies, it is 13:25 here in Australia, with lots of research to do on my computer and people to see.

My avatar was just a bit of very quick fooling around.  I have little patience with software packages, so I whipped up an old photo and a couple of brush strokes to disguise myself a little and the Jehovah Witnesses think I'm the incarnation of Satan, so I added the horns.  Whole job took 3 minutes.

Hello Joan!

Thanks for being supportive of me and being a friend.

Just wanted to stop by and tell you thanks!

I am really sorry to intrude on your time in this un-invited manner but I need some help and I hope that you will be one that can help me.

I have no contact in the west and I am not acquainted with the reading tastes of the western readership. I have recently written a book on atheist thought and would like to have a few reviews. I do not plan to use your review as a publicity material.   The title of the book is “The Death of an Idea” and it is published on I would be highly obliged if you can give me your opinion on this book. You may send your review on my following e mail address:

Hi, Joan.  Got your note; oddly, I can't reply to it.  Wonder if the same thing happened to you.

The hell of it is, I don't know as I'm particularly conscious of my "style" as a writer or my variability of style as regards how I approach a given subject or comment.  I suppose it depends on my mood at the time and my attitude toward the subject in question.  I'm also not horribly analytical about my style, which likely comes from the fact that I'm an engineer and not an English major.  I will admit to attempting to pattern myself after some great writers, such as Robert Heinlein.  I am a bit admirer of his work and greatly influenced by him.

Still, I appreciate your input regarding my style very much.  Thank you.

Just put this down in bits and bytes and wondered if you'd seen it.
