We are currently in the middle of the second anniversary of the Kitzmiller vs. Dover Area School District case, wherein the lying liars of the procreationism Discovery Institute were handed their collective heads in a humiliating defeat for them, but a major triumph for science and reality. To honor this wonderful event, Tuesday night PBS Nova will be airing their episode "Judgment Day", about the trial. I am still in DC, so I'm not sure I can get home in time to see it, but it'll be available online as well. I hear it's excellent. If you're a science teacher, maybe there is some use you can make of this video. Several of the folks involved with defending reality at Dover are traveling there for a reunion of sorts and to watch the show together. Eugenie Scott and Barbara Forrest were expert witnesses at Dover, and Richard Katskee was a lawyer with Americans United for Separation of Church and State who worked for the good guys and wrote up a lot of the case. All three of these incredible people are here at the meeting I'm at in DC:

I've known Genie for some years, but met Barbara and Richard at this meeting. These are three tremendous people, fighting for your rights, and defending reality against the lying horde that would legislate brainwashing children. These are the Good Guys, but they're far more than that: they are heroes, in every sense of the word. They are good folks fighting for what's right, and devoting their lives to it. Take a cyberwalk over to the National Center for Science Education and show them your love, on this anniversary of the triumph of reality over lies.
