New Book, The Devil in Dover

Terrific Article about a book on the Dover trial and an interview with the author! This should be required reading for State Legislators who think the Discovery Institute is their friend.

I haven't read the book yet, but I'll be at my local Barnes and Noble this weekend, so if it's there, I will pick it up. The article itself was interesting reading. If any of you saw the PBS Nova special on the Dover Trial, link here, the author , Lauri Lebo, was discussed mainly in her relationship to her father which deteriorated because they ended up on opposing sides during the trial.

One point in the article I thought was interesting was the role of journalism. In an effort to remain impartial, are they actually helping one side of an argument or another? I was surprised by how . . . impartial . . . the two reporters who were slandered by the defense in the Dover case remained even during their own testimony.

Well in any event I am looking forward to reading the book. I'll throw in another report once I have.
