Wall Street Journal (Circulation: 1,820,600)

A letter to the editor by Michael Behe, professor of biological sciences at Lehigh, was published in today's edition of the Wall Street Journal. Behe and three other readers responded to a column in the February 20 edition of the Journal in which science writer Sharon Begley discussed new arguments against the theory of intelligent design and against Behe's theory of the "irreducible complexity" of some organisms. Behe, the author of “Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution," said in today's letter that intelligent design "cannot be ruled out by the evidence."

A pause in the furor around art reduced to politics

Almost a month after Morning Call arts critic Geoff Gehman first wrote about "The Forbidden Pictures: A Political Tableau", he revisited the Larry Fink display to discuss the controversy surrounding it. Gehman writes, "'The Forbidden Pictures' is, in short, an excellent example of good art reduced to bad politics." Gehman offers a point-counterpoint look at the arguments surrounding the exhibit. Among them, "Point: This left-leaning show doesn't belong in Maginnes Hall, center of Lehigh's supposedly non-partisan department of political science. Counterpoint: Maginnes is an ideal site. It's one of Lehigh's busiest buildings, a hub of diversity. Because the Fink exhibit shares a roof with political science and history classes, it's an easy field trip. Hung in a hallway, Fink's photos encourage serious and casual attention, gazing and grazing."

Lehigh and Rowland on a Title Watch
