Junior Skepchicks at Work!


From the Odessa (Texas) High School newspaper. Two young women I am mentoring in the skepticism. They attended the James Randi Educational Foundation annual conference ("The Amaz!ng Meeting"), and their school did a write-up. That's me (the old lady) in the picture. Way to go, girls! (Click on picture to enlarge enough to read it). The girls were a bit fuzzy on the facts - It's James Randi, not James Randy, and it was not sponsored by the Skeptic Society, which is headed by Dr Michael Shermer. However, Dr. Shermer was a speaker at TAM. But, the essence is here.

I can't believe they didn't mention the gentleman who - in a remarkable display of social juggling - managed to adroitly step away from the VIP whom he was minding and shove a 20 penny nail up his nose without causing insult to the aforementioned VIP's sensibilities.

Thats really noble that you are mentoring young people, especially in our fundamentalist theocratic state.
