There’s an article in the New York Times about a field trip to the Creation Museum by 70 attendees of the North American Paleontological Convention. The visiting scientists were much more polite than I would have been.

My favorite moment:
Dr. Sato* likened the museum to an amusement park. “I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed Disneyland,” she said.

Did she enjoy Disneyland?

“Not very much,” she said.

* Sorry, Torchwood fans, her given name’s Tamaki, not Toshiko.

PS: Goofy new icon! I wish I could remember when the original picture came from...
