Zing!

Informed citizens respond to pro-creationist letters in the Star Tribune.

A new blog, Evolving in Kansas, takes on the myth of America as a "Christian" nation (writting by a Catholic).

And please note that Female Triumvirate of Evolution Experts has joined the Evolution Web Ring!

Now that's good to see.

The Star Trib won't print letters by me anymore, but I know that August Berkshire sent one in. I'm glad to see people didn't need our help.

Speaking of the Triumvirate, would you like for us to submit articles?

We've kind of been unsure as to what level of participation you'd be interested in having from Kate and I in particular.

We are at your disposal in whatever capacity you deem appropriate, of course.

You are also welcome to copy and paste anything you want from our blogs, of course. Consider it a lifetime license.

Kisses to you, Kristine.

Thank you, and of course! I'm interested in any science articles for the Triumvirate.

(I'm planning to cough up another installment of The Extended Phenotype, but I've been going nuts lately with all the time I have to read whatever I want, to work on my second novel, and to oogle my Cosmos DVDs. And school starts again next week already! Augh!)

Hmmm. I've always been a pest to the Editors of my local papers, but never got banned. I guess I need to work harder, eh?

To be fair, I told them that I would never subscribe to their paper again. (And I mean it, the paper has gone seriously downhill, to the point of insulting its subscribers. (And their cartoonist admitted that his cartoon was insulting.) I also said, in a highly public forum in Minneapolis, that the STrib needed a competitor, for which people e-mailed me personally and said, "I could kiss you!") But John wants the paper, so John pays for the paper. STrib has just been sold, so maybe that will end.

Over here in Saint Paul we are now home to the Pioneer Pamphlet.

Oh, I was raised on the Pine-n-Leer Prophet, don't cha know (grew up in North St. Paul--urk!).

At least it prints my letters. They even treated me to a free breakfast and gave me a (gag!) framed certificate (barf!) because of one of my letters. Right before my twenty-year high-school reunion. Gack! (And yes, someone did say, "Didn't I see you in the paper...didn't you get a letter printed..." Whoop-dee-doo! But they thought it was great--kind of like being on Oprah or something to them, I guess--so it wasn't too awkward. And I did use the frame to display something worthwhile--I think I lined the cat's box with the certificate.)
