This Day in History and its Relevance to Today

I do this fairly regularly at Rising Hegemon, when I'm not emailing the Pope or Captioning Pictures (btw, feel free to visit the third of the captioning trio, the not adequately recognized Watertiger) but today is a notable anniversary.

Today is the 80th Anniversary of the indictment of John T. Scopes. Makes you wistful for the good old days when William Jennings Bryan at least had some progressivism about him doesn't it?
