Dawkins profile in the NY Times

Longish article about my hero, Richard Dawkins, today in the Times. He is clarity personified and the fact that he's militantly atheist really warms my cockles.

By the way, he's written a science book for children. That's the cover image at left. It's already available in Britain and will be sold here soon. If you've got any bright-eyed inquisitive youngsters in your life, you might want to pick up a copy for them. The reviews say it explains everything. It's literally a kid's guide to reality.

The title for his book is just perfect. Reality is truly magical if you take the time to look into it. I'll bet this book is the best thing a kid could ever receive.
