It’s by the Humanists of Sarasota Bay. The reason it’s so superb and wonderful is that Pot Stories of and Humanist Essays of Barbara Walker and I has just been added to the recommended Reading List—to me, anyway.
I’m really honored to be in the company of such important authors. I made the joke: if the majority of Americans read these books it would it would knock modern “In God We Trust” society on…Continue
