There are some things in life that no one likes to have to deal with at any time of the year, let alone a time of year like this, i.e one that is supposed to be family focused. I’m not going to name any names in the blog post but it is in responce to the recent news on youtube about a very popular member of the ‘atheist community’ having lost one of their younger family members to cancer. Yes, I know that you can easily work out who’s family this is but I’d like to respect their privacy a little as they grieve, this is my English sense of propriety kicking in a little.
This blog post has two purposes though, and the first one is simple enough. I know I am not the only member of SkepticTV to have small people running around in the family and we all know that said small people are some of the most precious things that we can have in life. We know how much having them in our lives enriches them, and dispite the fact we might have to routinely run the roulette of ‘will they pass on their shiny new infection to me’ we wouldn’t change them for the world. So we would like to express our condolences to this family and hope that they can find comfort and solace as they support each other.
