...a vision of love wearing boxin' gloves and singin' hearts and flowers...
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow!! What a ride!"I'm still not sure I'm sold on this line, but I do know that as I walked away from the finish line today, with burning lungs and sore feet, and a good ten to fifteen minutes to get to where I'd parked my car, I couldn't stop myself from grinning at what I'd just done. Even now, thinking about it, I find myself involuntarily grinning again.- Dean Karnazes

When I take my last breath and they publish my obituary, the first line will say that I presided over the intelligent design trial. I can't top this, I don't think, and I'm fine with that, if this is what I'm remembered for. I'm proud of what I did. I thought I discharged my obligations and my duties well.A fascinating interview with the judge who presided over Kitzmiller et al. v. Dover Area School District (2004), a case on the teaching of Intelligent Design. The interview is, I think, as interesting for his explanation of how he did (and still does) his job, as well as the specifics of the case itself.
