|We had a 15-year anniversary virtual reunion of the plaintiffs, legal team, and others associated with the case this evening. Over Zoom, of course.|
We had about 50 people in virtual attendance, including Nick Matzke from New Zealand.
We are hoping that by next fall we can have an in-person reunion.
Several of us noted how the associations we made then have remained this many years later, that there is an uncommon cohesion to our little assemblage of people who stood up for science education, and those of us who backed them doing so. It was really good to have that time 'together', especially in this year.
I assume Dembski bragged about showing up, but then never did?
Something about having to go out to buy a bottle of Whisky I think.
Single malt. Sherry cask finish.
