Hiding in plain sight

This week's excuse for no posts: I just haven't had the time. I've been busy reading and preparing for Script Frenzy. Most of my preparation has consisted of reading and taking notes on a book by Christopher Vogler called The Writer's Journey. It's yet another Hero's Journey book, but it's pretty good and it came highly recommended.

Anyway, about "hiding in plain sight". It seems that science blogger PZ Myers signed up to go to a screening of "Expelled" in Minneapolis. "Expelled" is a movie that tries to get people to buy into creationism; it's most well-known for its producers having tricked many of their interview subjects into thinking that the movie was going to be a debate between science and...well, non-science. Myers is one of those subjects.

At the screening, he was asked to leave--under what authority it is not clear--but his family and their guest were allowed to remain for the screening. Ironies abound here, of course, but...well, you should go read the article. Far be it from me to spoil the fun.

(And, of course, if you read the comments on the article, you will see that the lies are starting up. Some of the creationists are as bad as Scientologists.)
