I may just be the only reader of this blog in the NY area, but I believe this is worth mentioning anyhow. Richard Dawkins will be giving a talk bright and early this saturday morning, and you can apparently RSVP in the comments section of this post to get put on the list to attend.

Update: Full! My new plan is to crowd around the entrance and scream like a teenage KISS fan the second I see someone I've seen a picture of before. They'll be forced to let me in.
