I get (nice) email

Last night, I reached out to regular-reading Biodork and asked if she fell off the planet, which is quite easy on a flat earth that we all know we live on.

She was consistently emailing Peeper Dee’s and then it stopped.

And if you’re like me, you felt the air get sucked out of Le Café almost immediately.

But Biodork’s been busily proselytizing freethought like a good atheist missionary.


In her response, she wrote that she gave a heavily researched talk to a group of atheists at the University of Minnesota on Thursday night. She wrote:

I was speaking about atheism and blogging, and I mentioned Le Cafe several times as an example of a great mix of personal, professional, thoughtful atheist writings and poop jokes.


Poop jokes belong on atheist blogs!

I told you I wasn’t crazy.

She also reminded me that there’s a Freethought Festival in Madison, WI this weekend. I didn’t put the damn thing on my calendar, but I posted it here. I’m so lame.

I’m booked up today, but maybe I can get up there tomorrow and sell some Le Café Witteveen T-shirts (that don’t exist).

I mean, you know how gullible skeptics are. If they accept the Big Bang and evolution — what with its mountains and mountains of evidence — those fuckers will accept anything.

Am I right, or am I right?


Dietary Supplements and Mortality Rate in Older Women

It would seem that multivitamins don’t help, but might hurt woman.

From the Archives of Internal Medicine, a peer-reviewed bi-monthly:

In older women, several commonly used dietary vitamin and mineral supplements may be associated with increased total mortality risk; this association is strongest with supplemental iron. In contrast to the findings of many studies, calcium is associated with decreased risk.
