I might have been 15 when AC/DC became popular in the San Francisco area. I was a born again Christian, and they scared the crap out of me back then. Every stoner in town (which was practically every guy in my high school) blasted their satanic message out of his cassete player over the roar of his open headers as he jammed through town and out into the countryside. They toured out here and played at this mega-concert called the "Day on the Green" at this coloseum in Oakland, I think. I might… Continue

A Shasta County atheist sued top state corrections officials Monday, claiming that his constitutional rights were violated when he was returned to prison after objecting to participation in a program with religious overtones as a condition of parole.
Barry A. Hazle Jr., 40, was released from prison in February 2007 after doing a year for drug possession. He was required to complete a 90-day drug treatment program and was… Continue

Obama's got this election wrapped up now.
He could spend the rest of this campaign just sitting at his breakfast table, sipping a cup of coffee, and posting clips about his plans for our nation on YouTube for all I care; he's the man!

Honestly, I can't believe that being a credible Atheist means that I have to know more about religion than the entire damn congregations and clergies of the local Baptist, Lutheran, and Catholic churches combined.

I've never had a dog with cancer before. We can't even think of treating this. Her lungs are shot through. The vet says that he's 85% sure it's cancer; if not, then it's something that can be "managed" with steroids. So she'd never be healthy again. She's only 5.

She cried in my arms there at the vet's, even as he pitched an advanced diagnostic plan that he knew I… Continue
