"Congressman Holds No God-Belief"

"Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.) is first Congress member in history to acknowledge his nontheism."

This is a big deal. (I sent him a thank you email.)

According to Wikipedia, he's not up for reelection until 2009. I hope he runs again, but I doubt he will. I suspect the only reason he was willing to make such an acknowledgement is because he plans to retire.
