Well, tonight may have been the last time any of us will see Olie Kolzig in a Caps uniform. For years, Olie was the heart and soul of the Caps. Olie kept the Caps in a lot of games when the rest of the team didn't have a whole lot of talent. For those of us who suffered through years like 1999-2000, when Chris Simon led the team in goals, Olie was the one guy Caps fans could rely on night after night. (Really! When Chris Simon is your leading goal scorer, your team is going to have problems.)
So Olie, whatever the future holds, thanks for all those great games in net. Thanks for all those great memories. And Go Caps!
(Oh, and by the way, Ben Stein licks sweaty balls.)

Will Premise simply decide to go ahead with their planned release, and ignore the Demand letter from XVIVO?
Will XVIVO seek a TRO before the scheduled April 18 release of Expelled?
Will there be a hearing for a preliminary injunction this week? And if there is, what will we learn from it? Did the animator who produced the "substitute" animation have access to a scientific consultant, or did they simply rely on what they saw in The Inner Life of a Cell?
It's going to be an interesting week.

Egads! A coherent answer from a presidential candidate on teaching evolution! What's the world coming to?
Q: York County was recently in the news for a lawsuit involving the teaching of intelligent design. What's your attitude regarding the teaching of evolution in public schools?
A: "I'm a Christian, and I believe in parents being able to provide children with religious instruction without interference from the state.
But I also believe our schools are there to teach worldly knowledge and science. I believe in evolution, and I believe there's a difference between science and faith. That doesn't make faith any less important than science.It just means they're two different things. And I think it's a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly don't hold up to scientific inquiry."

What's disappointing here is that an elected official, dependent on the goodwill of her voters, apparently feels there is no political risk (and perhaps some political benefit) to publicly berating an atheist simply for his beliefs.
Since he'll be in prison for tax evasion until 2015, we'll have to get by with what he's left us. In the meantime, please enjoy this tribute video. It's about 6 months old, but it still makes me smile:
