I'm getting anxious (...and worried about Skepticons.)

I'm getting anxious (...and worried about Skepticons.)

Skepticons II is happening in Springfield, Missouri, this November 20th and 21st. I wanna be there but little things keep setting me back (like TWO blown up cars).

The meeting is featuring some really great speakers; Dan Barker, P Z Myers, Richard Carrier, Dr. Victor Stenger, Rebecca Watson and more; it's a good line up and it ought to be fun. Its also the KOOLEST thing happening on a big scale in my little part of the world. But - eeek! - I've got to get these car headaches settled and finally have a reliable way to get there.

You don't think God had anything to do with this, do you?
