Athens, New York

So far, New York state has avoided the disastrous pro-fracking policies of nearby Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, some crazies are proposing to open Connecticut to fracking waste disposal, even though fracking activity itself has so far been kept out.

Confined space? Guess so.

Sheffield, Massachusetts

It was raining this morning, promising to clear slowly, which sometimes lets you find interesting in-between light and weather conditions. Sometimes, you just chase after it all day with little success. Today was mostly the second case, but the clouds worked here behind the billboards.

The Happy Atheist

Hartford, Connecticut

Last evening we attended a presentation by PZ Myers at The Mark Twain House and Museum, in Hartford. Quite a combination. The discussion centered around his current book, hence the post title, but ranged over quite a broad field.

The inscription (there are many throughout the building) reads, "If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."

 Interesting questions from the audience as well as the moderator.

Mr. Twain, Leggo style.
