It is hard to believe that it’s been five years since REALL was founded. Although we’ve accomplished a lot -- published a monthly newsletter, hosted many speakers and helped to become a force for rationality in Central Illinois and beyond -- there’s more to do.

You, too, can help. Stay informed about the latest information about paranormal and pseudoscientific issues by reading our newsletter; subscribing or reading magazines such as Skeptical Inquirer and Skeptic or Randi’s newsletter, Swift; watching critical videos; and participating in REALL’s monthly meetings.

But go beyond that -- raise and discuss issues with friends, co-workers and relatives. You can make a difference by taking an active role in providing critical information to those still clinging to irrational thinking. (And don’t forget you can always participate in informing others by giving three-month subscriptions to this newsletter for just three bucks!)

Just in case you missed it, I’ll leave you chuckling with this recent headline from the State Journal-Register (Feb. 6):

Psychic Friends Didn't Predict Own Debts (12721 bytes)
