At DragonCon, I met a woman named Heidi, and liked her instantly. She had that particular southern tone of voice that is no-nonsense, snappy, and fun. I didn’t get a lot of chances to talk to her, but she suggested we do more in the skeptical community about teaching critical parenting skills, and I agree. I’ll be looking into that for the future.
But that’s not why I’m writing this. I wanted to publicly thank her: she knows why. She left us a wonderful note at dinner the last night there. Heidi, we were all overwhelmed with your generosity, and it’s we who thank you. It’s folks like you who inspire us to trundle on through the mire.
