They finally noticed

Today, AP posted the first mention I've seen (in the MSM) of the Rock Beyond Belief Concert. They said just about nothing but at least they didn't trash it.

The Concert is a very cool thing -- the first official gathering of non-religious troops that is sanctioned by the brass. It took a ton of work on the part of the organizers. The military was not thrilled with holding an event for atheist military personnel. But they had to say yes, and they did.

It should be amazing. Dawkins is heading the event but there are tons of great speakers and acts. I'm very happy for all atheist military members. This is a monumental, first-ever event.
