In the ongoing Hovind trial, no new revelations except for more details about how rich the creationist con artist and tax evader is. He makes $50,000/year in speaking fees, and with his wife, sells $1.8 million/year in “Christian merchandise” (tell me, you devout and faithful believers who also read Pharyngula: do those two words in conjunction make you cringe a little bit, deep down?).

They still deny that they earn salaries, and claim that they have no income at all.

    I agree with Mrs Tilton: why should I cringe at the phrase “… “Minnesotan merchandise.” Someone has to sell those … big foam cheese hats.

    Minnesota is not Wisconsin, thank you very much.

    MAJeff rebukes me, “Minnesota is not Wisconsin, thank you very much.”

    Yeah, yeah. And Maronites aren’t Roman Catholic, even if they seem pretty much two peas in a pod to outsiders. Two midwest states with lots of lakes and snowy, frigid winters. Do people ice fish in Wisconsin? Then how was I to know they didn’t wear big cheese hats?
