Stranger Fruit

A post ends up on a dead tree

Bora has announced the contents for the soon-to-be published anthology of science-related blog writings, and and my post on Edward T. Oakes’ treatment of Darwin and Marx has made the cut. I want to thank the readers of the post for making some suggestions/comments that I subsequently incorporated into the final version which
I mailed to Bora just a few hours ago.

(The entry actually started life as a minor part of an unfinished paper on YEC misuse of intellectual history that I began in 1998 . It subsequently appeared in a set of talks I gave between 1999 and 2001 at various venues around the metro Phoenix area, only to reappear here in 2006. What a long trip is has been!).
