Folks in the Midwest, I you are near Arkansas or Kansas, two excellent conferences are coming this month. Logicon at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville and Reasonfest at the University of Kansas. Both of these will have great speakers and fun times before and after. I hope you will take a look and come have some fun. I'll be speaking at both, but there is lots more with excellent scientists and activists.
Even if you can't come, I hope you will throw some love their way and put a few dollars in the pot. These small conferences are often run on a shoe string and need our support.
