    Have a great conference in Orlando.
    If anyone offers you discounted amusement park tickets if you attend a 90-minute presentation, run away real fast.

    Are any of the other speakers conservatives, or even libertarians? There are a lot of names I don’t recognize, but I don’t see any other speakers who’ve ever said they applied reason to a political question, and reflexive liberalism didn’t come out.

    ron bailey is.

    Robert Price, who hosts some of their podcasts, is a conservative. They had a podcast discussion between him and Chris Mooney. Price was not really that great at propounding a secular conservative vision. He’s an interesting, if a bit heretical*, biblical scholar, but his political vision isn’t as thought as someone like Derbyshire.

    At any rate, good luck, Razib.

    I used to read Ophelia Benson’s Butterlies and Wheels site alot. Now, not so much.

    Anyway, good lineup.
