Life, Death, Cancer is a blog post reflecting on the emotional difficulty of attending (and running in) a cancer-fighting race, and questioning the fund raising pragmatics of such things. This is also a great example of a person using a blog to address a personally difficult issue in a way that others will find useful as a source of strength and ideas. Beats praying.

Don’t forget that May 1st is Sunflower Guerilla Gardening Day.

Start preparing for Skepchicon. This is a tract ad the Convergence Con in Minneapolis, this coming July 4th weekend. Watch this space and Quiche Moraine for details. I’m doing four or five panels. I believe discount tickets are available prior to May 15th (but check that date at the Convention site, via the link to Skepchics provided above).

Don’t forget to submit your science blogging posts to THIS CARNIVAL!!! (Science for the People, in Latin).
