Interviewed in "Expelled" and Expelled from Screening

An associate professor at the University of Minnesota was expelled from a free screening of the movie "Expelled." P.Z. Meyers was interviewed in "Expelled," and even thanked in the movie's credits but was not allowed to see the first screening.

Well, if you want to hear the story from Mr. Meyers himself, you can read this post. His follow-up post:
Still straining to find an excuse is also a nice read. Got Meyers'  photo from Greg Laden's blog.

Baby Born, Fell off a Moving Train, and Survived

Bhuri Kalbi, 33, was seven month pregnant and she wanted to use toilet in a moving train in India. The lady however unexpectedly gave birth to a baby that slipped down the toilet bowl onto the tracks. "My delivery was so sudden," said the Bhuri Kalbi, the mother of the infant, born two months prematurely. "I did not even realize that my child had slipped from the hole in the toilet." Kalbi fainted on the toilet seat after the birth for a few minutes before waking up and alerting her family. They stopped the train and ran along the train to find the newborn girl lying uninjured on pebbles by the track. The photos of the baby taken inside a hospital in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad, India February 28, 2008 are borrowed from Reuters.
