"I just want to say thank you to all the people who were able to attend the award ceremony last week at Harvard when I received the "Rushdie Award" for Cultural Humanism. It was a great event and I spent at least 2 hours answering people's questions and signing autographs after the ceremony ended. I really appreciate all the thoughtful questions and genuine interest in Bad Religion, Evolution, and Humanistic topics shown by the students and general public alike. I wish I could take more time with fans everywhere I go on tour, but alas, the rigors of a tour are often too exhausting and especially after a concert I am too beat to hang out much. In any case, even though an award like the one given to me by Harvard and the American Humanist Society come only once in a lifetime, I hope to be able to do more lecturing appearances in the future and look forward to seeing more of you there. Thanks a lot.In other Graffin news, you can hear a podcast interview with him here.

Recent reports suggested the band may have limited touring plans, as Graffin will be busy teaching through semester at UCLA.
