'Tis true. He was at Scripps, which is just across the way. I was not able to make his talk because the traffic was atrocious today and also because I remembered that I technically did not know where Scripps was. (I had to call my roommate. It is like another campus, really.) I made the post-talk discussion, though, and I introduced myself just as PZ was about to leave.

I guess I can say that PZ did not have horns and was not a terribly mean old atheist in person. (I may have missed that part, though!) I even told him to have a safe flight back. Do you think I am getting soft?

Is it possible for you to post the photo somewhere?

I don't have it. One of the students who invited PZ took it. However, I believe PZ plans on posting it to Pharyngula. (If not, you can e-mail him and ask him for it directly. I know he plans on sending it to Ed Brayton)

Rumor has it that PZ wears a codpiece.

True or False?

Congratulations - PZ is rapidly taking on the attributes of the latest Dos Equis Ad Campaign - "The World's Most Interesting Man".

Only I would recommend PZ going with the Dos A's de Rojas instead.

I talked with Ed Brayton about you over dinner. I bet your ears wear burning, Rob*.

That's good, although I took a swipe at Ed recently, so he would've been a little justified in being nasty.  :D

It was a drive-by posting at his blog. I didn't stick around to watch the grenade go off, but I imagine Ed has deleted it by now.

Yeah, those two.  I don't know all the details, but I didn't think they were really speaking much.  I could be wrong, of course.

PZ thinks Ed is part of the Neville Chamberlain branch of the Science Bloggers and Ed thinks PZ is too strident and unwilling to find common cause with theistic evolutionists.

Tho I understand PZ's stance there, I think I gotta side with Ed on that one.

This must be the first time PZ has ever posted a picture of himself with someone who's been banned from his blog. Frankly, I can't think of another example of any other blogger doing that...

I don't see any resemblance to Tom Cruise.

Which is a compliment. (Tom Cruise - bleccchhh! ) :p
