Snippet from Mike the Mad Biologist:

The other thing we evolutionary biologists don't do enough of, and this stems from the previous point, is make an emotional and moral case for the study of evolution. Last night, I concluded my talk with a quote from Dover, PA creationist school board member William Buckingham, who declared, "Two thousand years ago someone died on a cross. Can't someone take a stand for him?"

My response was, "In the last two minutes, someone died from a bacterial infection. We take a stand for him."
Some of you know that I have a penchant for long travels in exotic places (I lived in China for 2 months in 2004):
Here is a store of all my photos








Well, from May->July I'll be in Southeast Asia. Mostly off the grid -- Enjoy yourselves.
