The new RRS newsletter continues to be published on a frequent basis. Here is an important story from the most recent newsletter:
Ashley (a.k.a. Healthy Addict) of RRS Ohio is leading a project to debunk the claims put forth by the Creation Museum in Kentucky. Several other local affiliate heads have signed on to help her in scientificaly refuting each and every claim put forth by the "Museum". The cooperative affiliate heads are, Zombie of RRS Ontario, Bumbklaatt of RRS Colorado, Lunar Shadow of RRS Northern California, Voiderest of RRS Texas, Will Power of RRS Alabama, and myself, Jack of RRS Michigan. This project is still in it's infancy, so more news as it developes. If you would like to assist us in our efforts, contact one of us, Voiderest and myself are regulars here on this site, and the others can be found in the affiliate section HERE , or by clicking their names above. The ultimate goal is to have the resulting material presentable and coherent in a format for tours of the "Museum" for children, to point out to them why all the claims put forth by AIG are horribly inaccurate in any kind of scientific context.
We've covered the Smallkowski family story here before. Nicole Smallkowski refused to say a prayer at her high school basketball game and instead recited a godless version of our Pledge of Allegiance. Nicole was kicked out of school soon after. The battle hasn't been an easy one. They've been threatened and told to leave town a great many times... they wont give up.
Was the fire at their property this weekend a maliciously planned attack? If so, are the police involved? Considering their role in the Smallkowski federal hearing, it's not off the wall to suspect our most paranoid and worst fears.
Tonight we'll host real life Doogie Howser, Eugene Volokh on the show. Tonight we let you behind closed doors to learn about a very personal and private issue to us. Unfortunately we have little choice but to speak out publicly now to raise awareness for this extremely sensitive atheist issue. Join us tonight when we record at 6pm est, or join us again at 8pm est for a re-airing of our conversation.
Brian Trent will also join us tonight to cover current events.

We'll be making an attempt to keep our webcam chat room open 24/7. Come for live conversation and impromptu shows. We now record material on a daily basis and sometimes within minutes of being alerted to irrational emergencies. Since Kelly, Sapient, and Rook have all moved in together, response time to emergencies has been reduced ten fold. This week alone we've recorded 8 hours of material... LIVE and UNCUT available soon for download to all paying subscribers. This new show style allows us to be more relevant about current events, which has led us to focus on the movie SICKO over the last week. Join our chat room on most evenings for live exchanges. We now are able to integrate more of our listeners in to the show, so if you'd like to be on the show to discuss any issue at all, just wait for us to be live and ask if we have the time. We are always ready to press the record button. If you have a story about health care (positive OR negative), please visit our chat room soon. We'll be live this Friday with discussion at 9 pm est.

The Rational Response Squad has officially started its leap into a new frontier: The Rational Response Squad Academy.
A project the RRS heads have been working on for a long time, the idea is to have free classes given by experts in all sorts of fields. From physics, biology and chemistry, to history and bible courses, even psychology and logic classes. These courses are designed to be on college level. For the time being all of these courses will be free of charge, and open to everyone. We are able to spend this time giving back as a result of your financial assistance. If you are able to subscribe, please do so. If we get overcrowded classes, we may need to limit it to only subscribers. Classes will be held in a stickam.com video room.
The Rational Response Squad will go live tonight! 9 pm est Friday May 18th tune in to the Rational Response Squad by clicking one of the media player buttons in the left sidebar at: www.RationalResponders.com.
Tonight's live-in-studio show hosts include: Rook, Sapient, Kelly, Ashley (HealthyAddict - RRS Ohio), and RRS mentor Jake (www.atheistnetwork.com). We'll be fielding your questions and thoughts left and right in our stickam chatroom. Come to the video chatroom by 9pm est to watch us record the show live. Post your questions and thoughts about any issue on your mind pertaining to the Rational Response Squad in our chatroom as we record the show live and we may discuss your question. We're hoping for theist guests, so please come on out.
