Last Friday I plugged Wendy Chao’s appearance on Good Morning America. You can now read a wrap-up of how things went by checking out Wendy’s web site. She even has a link to a clip of the show on YouTube. My favorite line from Wendy’s summary:
I was confused — I didn’t think you could ever be too skinny for television.
Nicely done, Wendy! I look forward to the day when I, too, can fit in size 00 jeans.
Also, check out Skepchick friend Mark Duwe take on Derek Ogilvie on GMTV in this clip on YouTube (thanks to Sid at The Skeptic for the link). Mark is an awesome guy, though I almost didn’t recognize him in this clip. I didn’t even think the color black existed in his wardrobe. Anyway, good job Mark!
In other news, yesterday marked the anniversary of the birth of one of my favorite people ever, James Randi. He’s the guy who inspired me to get into this whole skepticism thing. Seeing him on television, reading his books and weekly online commentary (yeah, he was blogging before it was cool), and participating in his forum led me to eventually create this web site and perform other random acts of skepticism.
Randi has had a tough year, considering his hospitalization after TAM4 for heart trouble. Whenever I talk to him, though, he’s just as entertaining and awesome as ever. He’s still writing his weekly commentaries, planning future events, and preparing for at least another thirty or forty years of skeptical ass kicking.
Check out Randi’s site at www.randi.org for more info on TAM, the forum, and his weekly commentary.
