If you're going to be in western Georgia on Tuesday, November 9, why not drop by the University of West Georgia and come to my "Death from the Skies!" talk? The lecture (I hate calling them that; it's not like I'm chiding anyone) starts at 8:00 p.m., is open to the public, and will include my usual smart-assery, as well as information about whether or not we'll all be killed by an asteroid impact*. Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for the hoi polloi.
For more information or to purchase tickets, call the Townsend Center at 678-839-4722. I hear a bunch of Atlanta skeptics are coming as well, so this'll be fun. Hope to see some BABloggees there!
