De Chelonian Mobile

Jee-bus, but I thought we were in trouble on my whole, beloved evolution thing. Turns out there's even more fundamental disagreement about the basics out there. To whit, some 18% of people don't believe in a heliocentric worldview. Add in a further who didn't know and that's nearly a quarter of the American public who doesn't acknowledge that the earth revolves around the sun. Times like this call for strong drink and stronger company. (Twirl of the derby to Mr. Yglessias and the finely Irish named Kieran Healy.)
