Quick Status Update
1.) I received the contract in the mail on Monday, signed it and returned it. So my freedom to leave here will arrive in a few weeks! Presumably shortly after I finish the book.
2.) The book itself is proceeding just swimmingly. I have only four chapters to write now (out of 24) and the rough draft of the book is already 85,000 words. It looks like I'll be finished on or about the 18th, which should give me two weeks to go over everything with polish. Perfect timing.
3.) The show "The Ten Commandments" just reran this past weekend on This American Life, and it looks like a theme is developing: every time I appear on This American Life, I get three fan emails. If this keeps up, before you know it, I'll have, like, 33 new fans. Not bad, especially since I think at least some of them are superdelegates.
4.) There was a fascinating post and discussion (linked to from Andrew Sullivan) about what an atheist religious service might look like. I have some definite thoughts about this, but--alas--no time to write them now, what with the pending book and all. But when I come back, boy howdy. Prepare for an essay!
Gotta go finish more writing now.
