I’m a fan of the Texas Freedom Network — they are fighting the good fight in the heart of one of the craziest states in the country — but they just made a big mistake. They are celebrating their 15th anniversary by bringing in a big-name speaker…Arianna Huffington. Jebus. One of the worst purveyors of pseudo-science, quackery, and New Age clown-noise on the internet. It reminds me a bit of Bill Maher winning an award from AAI…except that in this case, Huffington hasn’t made any contribution to the promotion of science.
Don’t buy a ticket. Don’t endorse that loon.
TFN does good work, though: if you were planning to go, wait until the event is over, and then mail them a $25 donation.
I’m still astounded, though. What were they thinking?
