On Science 

  • Apparently, according to Nigel Calder, former editor of New Scientist, Richard Dawkins needs a refresh in Genetics. Audio interview here.
  • Interesting article on the Boston Globe regarding the ID/Evolution debate.
General News
  • Going way beyond don't ask don't tell...and false historical claims.  Victor Hanson responds to a claim by Mike Gravel that gay is more than OK for the military. 
  • Parableman rightly chastises a church for not agreeing to do the funeral for the family of a gay man.
  • Great article in the Atlantic Monthly on the financial and manufacturing prowess growing in southern China. See China Makes, The World Takes for a fascinating read.  The picture below is pretty amazing...all the little boxes are shipping containers.
