Postcard has wrong address

Today I received a postcard from FFRF in Madison, Wisconsin notifying me about a photo opportunity in Tulsa. The Tulsa chapter of FFRF will be photographed with a billboard calling attention to the fact that Senator Thomas Gore, the state's first senator, was an atheist.

The postcard says to meet somewhere on 32nd Street prior to going to the photographing sight. That is incorrect. Those who want to go with the group to the billboard the day of the picture taking should meet at the Genealogy Center at 29th and Harvard at 4:00 pm.

Billboard to go up soon

A billboard will go up soon on the Broken Arrow Expressway near 15th Street. It will reference a U. S. Senator from Oklahoma: Thomas Gore. Gore was an atheist, and the billboard will refer to him as such. The billboard is scheduled to be up on either September 7 or September 8. Bill Sherman, religion editor of the local newspaper, interviewed me over the phone a few days ago about the billboard.
