Can we expect a PIG to Disease anytime soon? It's time to dispel that oppressive notion that diseases are caused by these invisible germs and cured by elitist scientists in labcoats.

Tara,

I don't know if WHO radio(1040 AM) from Des Moines reaches you in Iowa City during the day, but this afternoon, local right-wing talk show hack Steve Deace interviewed Jonathan Wells. The topic was of course the PIG, and Wells was in good form, although Deace's need to hear himself talk actually limited Wells somewhat. In any case, it was exactly what you would expect, with Wells spewing his lies and distortions and Deace cheering him on the whole way. What is sad is that this is THE radio station in Iowa, with a (relatively) huge audience, and its programming is highly influential. This, coming right on the heals of seeing a big YEC display drawing a crowd (mostly young kids!) at the State Fair, leaves me even more worried than usual about the future of our state.

If you are interested in hearing the segment, it is supposed to be up as a podcast on the station website soon.

I'll check it out.

Didn't hear about the YEC display at the state fair. Shoulda expected it, I guess. Maybe ICS will have to do something there next year.
