Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    DARWIN DAY EVENTS: This comes from the National Center for Science Education:

    Dear New York City-area friends of NCSE,

    I thought that you might be interested in two upcoming evolution events.

    First, at 2:00 p.m. on February 13, Ian Tattersall will speak on
    "Darwin and Evolution," and then have a conversation with Massimo
    Pigliucci, in Lecture Room 714 of the Hunter West Building at Hunter
    College. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is
    limited, and you must RSVP by February 10 by e-mailing
    contact@nycskeptics.org with your full name and e-mail address.

    For further details, visit:

    Second, at 7:00 p.m. on February 17, there will be a performance of
    Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee's Inherit the Wind, preceded by a
    wine and cheese reception at 6:30 p.m. and followed by a group
    discussion of the play's ethical issues, in the Ceremonial Hall of the
    New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 West 64th Street at Central
    Park West. Suggested donation is $5.00.
