Read an excellent essay by The Farmer of Corrente on the roots of Fundamentalism in America. Great writing and a good history lesson.
Also read his post with H.L. Mencken’s take on the Scopes trial in Dayton, Tennessee in 1925. It seems that the school board of Dover, Pennsylvania, is going to become the next “heavenly Hillsboro” (Act I, Inherit The Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee).
