Today’s blog will be guest written by Penn Jillette. Okay not exactly. Penn has a new book out called, Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday there is an excerpt from it over on Salon.com. In the book he talks a bit about his experiences on Celebrity Apprentice. It’s an interesting read. So if you like to read, be warned it is more than six sentences, head on over and check it out. A short excerpt of the …..er…excerpt are behind the jump as well as the like.
