NCAS MOVIE NIGHT
Friday, September 29, 8 p. m. Chip and Grace Denman again invite
NCAS members and their guests to join them for movies that skeptics can laugh
at. They will supply the popcorn and sodas; bring anything else you would
like to share. On the agenda will be a showing of FOX's definitive broadcast
of the authenticity of the Roswell alien plus other science fiction of interest
to the group. Space is limited, so be sure to call the NCAS line by
Wednesday, September 27 to reserve a spot and to obtain directions.
The Washington Post has been running a special "Horizon"
learning section the second Wednesday of each month. It contains articles
of interest to skeptics and has been quite successful since it started
about a year ago. The next edition will be Wednesday, September 13.
(It wouldn't hurt if the Washington Post received some encouragement from
you to continue the section indefinitely.)
