To all Skepchick readers who live in the Austin area or know someone in the area looking to hook up with a group of kick ass critical thinkers, science people,Â and skeptics:
Taysia Glover, who is currently studying Architectural Engineering at the greatest university on the planet (the University of Texas at Austin), is getting the ball rolling on a skeptic’s group based in Austin, and she wants to get the word out to the masses.
Here’s the the thing: Austin is where the Legion of Doom (a.k.a. the Texas State Board of Education) meets to carry out its evil deeds, and having another organized group of rational thinkers in the area might help in efforts to keep that in check. Plus,Â Austin isÂ one of the coolest cities in North America, and would be a great place for all manner of skeptical meetings and conferences, and a goodÂ local group is always beneficial for planning those types of things. So even if you’re not from Austin, show Taysia some love, and do what you can to help her and the Austin skeptics get started.
