Evolution & Recovery
by Bob Ciminel


February 04, 2005

I've enjoyed reading Dave and George's letters on evolution. I hope they were prompted by my tongue-in-cheek article in Sitnews. If not, I encourage them to read it for a third perspective.

Unlike some of the letters I read on these pages, these were quite civil and their points were well made. I'm not sure why the gentlemen and gentlewomen who represent us in Congress can't maintain the same level of decorum, particularly when preening before the television cameras.

I would also like to extend my best wishes to Richard (Dick) Kauffman, publisher of Sitnews, on his recovery from heart surgery. Oh, and if it's not too politically incorrect, I'd like to add that Richard and Mary are in our prayers too. We still do that down here in the South, despite our sometimes arcane views on evolution and creationism.
