The Dawkins trip sounds great, but sadly that's the middle of the week and I'll be working. You might get Susan to go, though, she's very adventurous. I'll send her a message in case she doesn't see this.
I see you went to William & Mary and that you're in law. Did you know that our DA, Dean Flippo, is a W&M alum? I'm sure you did, I think he teaches at Monterey College of Law sometimes. Well anyway, he's very proud of his school, and he made me wish I had gone there!
I hope you can make one of our get-togethers sometime. We aren't that active and don't meet often, but we have fun when we do. There's also a group in Santa Cruz called 'Skeptics Without a Cause', which we associate with, and they're a lot of fun too. Let me know if you're interested in an introduction.
