Since I’ve been so incredibly busy planning for our second annual Mr. Paul Aints game on August 9 and joint American Atheists/Minnesota Atheists regional conference on August 10, I will use this column to talk about our Weekend of Unbelievable Fun: The Second Coming.
The conference planning committee of August Berkshire, Jill Carlson, Heather Hegi, Stephanie Zvan, and me has worked incredibly hard, and I am confident that attendees will be superbly happy with the product we have to offer.

We’re here for fun, so please don’t make a fuss.
So we’ll root for the Mister Paul Aints team.
