Wow! I was not expecting that, even with the heads-up. I literally jumped in my seat when the, er, party got started.

Very cool.

Streamed live? For anyone?

It's very decent of someone with the profile of the liar to lead the audience he will attract toward reason.

thank goodness he's on our side

Kathmandu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i've always dreamed of going there.....
and there's this, song...whatzit called?

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

He wrote this one shortly b4 turning:

I've been demoralized too many times
But now I realize, Ah ah, no more.
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people who put me down
You better get ready to run,
Cuz I'm gonna get me a gun

I know my destiny is like the sun
You see the best of me when I have got my gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people who put me down
You better get ready to run,
Cuz I'm gonna get me a gun

So you think you can push me around
And make me run
Well I'm gonna tell you now
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people who put me down
You better get ready to run,
Cuz I'm gonna get me a gun

Gonna get me a gun...

thank goodness he's on our side
