Via Andrew Sullivan: A truly gorgeous animated filmlet called "Duelity." Click on "Watch" and then "Duelity"--you can see the individual films later. It's two versions of creation placed side by side: one, the Genesis creation story told with scientific language and graphics, and the other, the more Darwinian creation story told in biblical language and with religious graphics. The stained-glass dinosaurs are my favorite, but the whole thing is really beautiful. No matter your beliefs, go watch it; I perceived no axe-grinding going on.
Here's a widely-linked-to fake Mike Huckabee ad. It's the sort of thing the Daily Show would be doing if the writer's weren't striking, so it might help us all get through this desert. I've been expecting Huckabee to surge for some time, and right around the time that Giuliani's numbers started collapsing, Huck has taken up the slack. This piece sort of looks at the devil's deal that evangelical Christians have to make no matter who the candidate eventually is.
And Jodie Foster has finally come out! That sure took a while. My favorite part of the article is the fact that John Travolta (the other famous closeted Scientologist), was on hand to provide a supportive quote...however hypocritical.
Okay. Gotta go.
