A Letter Of Congradulations to Mr. DJ Grothe

Dear Mr. Grothe;

I would like to take time out to recognize you as the new president of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF).

You were not chosen to fill this position because of a divine revelation, a horoscope cast, or a reading of tea leaves. You were chosen to fill this position because of the hard work and dedication you have put into promoting science, the scientific method, and skeptical thinking. Under your leadership as the Center For Inquiry Vice President and Director of Outreach Programs, the Center For Inquiry has been able to establish Centers on Campus in many universities, colleges, and high schools across the country and around the world.

Skeptics like you aren’t chosen, they choose. They choose to stand against the tide of unreason. They choose to fight the forces of anti- and pseudo sciences. They choose to expose the inconsistencies and hypocrisies from religious fundamentalists.

As host of the Center For Inquiry’s radio show and the podcast “Point of Inquiry”, you engage the most prominent minds in the U.S. and the world, challenging their thoughts and notions. With your non-judgemental, non-biased approach to interviewing, you prod your guests into elaborating on their books, their comments, and their positions, clearing away misconceptions and misinterpretations.

It is with great respect that I extend to you my greatest congratulations and warmest wishes, and welcome you to your new position as president of the JREF. With unwavering certainty, I’m sure that you will lead the JREF to newer and unprecedented heights.

You have a character, a charisma, and a charm unlike anyone else, and I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us the skeptical community.
