He's probably not the first and he's probably not the only current U.S. Representative to be an atheist, but Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) is the first to admit it publicly. This is great news and I can only hope that more politicians will follow his lead. I don't know anything about his politics or his effectiveness as a leader, but admitting that he "does not believe in a supreme being"* makes him a hero in my eyes.
I was reading through the Boing Boing posts this morning in Google Reader when I came across a familiar photo. Apparently, Games for the Brain uses Creative Commons licensed Flickr images in a game they call "Rotate". It's similar to those little puzzle games where you push the squares around but, in this version, you rotate the squares in place.
