One Long Argument:
One small primate helping to defend science education against the advance of neocreationism.

Punctuated Equilibrium

I've been meaning to post more frequently, but between the last days of school (the 8th graders are, mostly, going off to high school! How could that be? They're so smalll!), upcoming quasi-graduation ceremonies, gradschool coursework, the middle school science praxis test in (gulp) two more days, and, of course, the wedding . . .

Well, you get the idea.

But within the next few days you will be treated to: editorial board respect for ID, the Tulsa Zoo, and more!
