Lee is the author of Blame It on the Rain: How the Weather Has Changed History.

And Sonja Cohen tracks an unusually rich week of Unitarian Universalists in the media, with the "Our Whole Lives" sexuality education curriculum on NPR, Rep. Pete Stark's humanism getting a trumpet blast from the "brights," and Pete Seeger talking about his spirituality with Beliefnet.
On a technical note, the magazine's RSS feeds decided to go on vacation last week — just like me! — but I hope we can get them up and running again soon.
