Shout out to Pastor Roberston at 2nd Presbyterian in Memphis for using Planet Nine in his sermon yesterday. OK, so I'm a pagan and all, but I can still appreciate the analogy about unseen forces leading to understanding of the world.

Hey, space nerds, I'm a big fan of pretty much everything the podcast does, but their series on sending a cubesat to space is rated MUST LISTEN. By me.

3/ It's not the stereotype in your head. So IT KILLS ME that Alabama is trying to hard to be that stereotype. Please y'all do all of us a favor and don't be the bumpkins everyone expects us to be. Please?

2/ But you know? There are super interesting people who came from Alabama that you might never guess are from there. Random examples: Condoleezza Rice. Jimmy Wales (grew up across town from me), Mia Hamm, Tim Cook. Those are just off the top of my head.

1/ I was born and raised in northern Alabama. People always seem surprised to learn that about me. I try to use it as an opportunity to to get them to realize that Alabama is not the stereotype they think it is. Admittedly, it's an uphill task.
