On the advice of counsel, I’m not going to say a word, yet.

However, I’ve been getting lots of email and seeing lots of articles on the web; I’ve been getting offers of pro bono lawyering and to set up donations for a defense fund. Thanks to everyone! I haven’t been replying to most of those offers because, on the advice of counsel, yadda yadda, but I appreciate them all. If the need develops I may take advantage of them, but until then, I just crouch, gnawing on the muzzle, mad eyes rolling, doing my best to be a good little doggie.

But really, thanks, thanks, thanks — and now we just sit back and wait. Let the pros do their job.

    In the meantime, let’s kick back and watch Dawkins TV.

    He takes on Deepak Chopra at 18:50. Well worth watching — I was wanting to throttle Chopra through my monitor.

    This reminds me of the time of Geller kept suing James Randi. He lost every time, but I think it was quite a nuisance to Randi.

    Reading part of the suit it seems as if Pivar.
    1, used Neil de Grass Tyson’s quote inappropriately.
    2. PZ pointed this out to Neil
    3. Neil asked for his name to be removed from the website promoting the book
    So this is part of the major 15 M damage he received from PZ!
    The proof of a classic crackpot!

    Blake Stacy is doing a good job blogging this.

    Uh-oh! I believe I may have intimated that the crackpot utilised Leary-esque methods in developing his theory, so you may be getting a cell-mate, PZ.

    You go ahead and brush up your harmonica skills; I’ll look for a recipe for prison pruno.

    Brownian, I’ve always liked Steve’s take on prison wine (Steve of Steve Don’t Eat It fame, of course):

    “This wine’s nose was a rectum.

    Thanks Blake for the Dawkins video.

    What was that shot of the squirrel about? Dawkins looks suddenly distracted- cut to squirrel running up a tree.

    off topic, but I just noticed that the BBC’s “The Atheism Tapes” and the 1987 Horizon program “The Blind Watchmaker” with Richard Dawkins have been posted to alt.binaries.documentaries… which is usually full of creationist BS.

    Just made me happy to see that it’s not all UFO nuts and the begodded out there, is all.

    Science crackpot, legal crackpot… Pivar reminds me of his own balloon animals, all whiny plastic around some hot air.

    Hmm. Could sue baiting repeatedly bomb a justice obsession syndrome sufferer to oblivion?
