James “The Amazing” Randi is stepping down as the President of the James Randi Educational Foundation, and has asked Phil “Bad Astronomy” Plait to take his place. Please, please, please head on over to BA and congratulate Phil on this enormous and truly deserved honor. And perhaps the best news for the rest of us (in addition to knowing that the JREF is passing into great hands) is that Phil will be continuing Bad Astronomy even as he embarks on this new and exciting journey.
Congratulations, Phil! I’m sure you will do the Randi Foundation proud.
