Richard Dawkins gets through

Highly recommended
Over at prodigiously posted Maryannaville is this funny tale about PZ Myers, who owns the estimable Pharyngula blog:

"PZ Myers took his family and a guest to see the movie, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. It's a Ben Stein film about Intelligent Design. While waiting in line, PZ was asked to leave by either a cop or an uniformed guard. Apparently, the producers had Myers on a watch list yet they allowed Myer's family and guest in to see the movie. Now get this, the guest that Myers and family had with them was Richard Dawkins, author of 'The God Delusion.'"

Check out the links at Maryannaville. For more, see Dawkins and Myers discussing the expulsion from Expelled.

Dear Mr Wilson,
Your summary might mislead some... the movie hasn't yet been released in its final form. Your story refers to a pre-screening, for the press, etc. which Myers and Co. tried to crash. Not only was Dawkins admitted, he was introduced at the end of the show and apparently acknowledged that he had not been invited and did not have a ticket! Read about it at
