Dawkins Going to the Bible Belt

Richard Dawkins is heading to the US heartland for a series of speaking engagements:

He is to address a series of 2,000-seater venues in the American heartlands. The tour will coincide with the publication of his best-seller The God Delusion in paperback in the US in January and act as a prelude to a series of global events to mark the bicentenary of Charles Darwin in 2009.

I wish he'd take a detour to central New York, but it's good to see him walk straight into the belly of the beast.
