Holy Smoke: PiL at the Troc

Johnny Lydon

It looks like Johnny Rotten had to sit down through this one. But give the guy a break, he’s nearly 60 and it’s not like he’s treated his body like the temple that other aging rockers like Keith Richards have.

The new Public Image Limited release “Double Trouble” from their album ‘What the World needs Now’ rages against the unreliability of  appliances and a general distaste for cuddling.

If you’re in Philadelphia, get your tickets to see them at the Troc on November 11, you lucky dogs.

Nice Tie, Nye

Tomorrow morning’s ‘Meet the Press’ puts Bill Nye the Science Guy in the spotlight again. This time Mr. Nye will be speaking with (debating?) Marsha Blackburn on the topic of Climate Change. Just about a week ago Mr. Nye debated with uber-creationist Ken Ham over the theory of knowledge (actually, the topic was supposed to be evolution that time, but that wasn’t what was actually argued).

Nye is becoming the public face of science, willing to take on anyone anywhere in defense of science as a means of uncovering the mysteries of the universe. This has been making waves in the science community where many academics are uncomfortable with these kind of debates. Their argument is that science is not decided by debate. Science is a way of interrogating nature directly; data comes first and conclusions are derived from these data. 

Bill will be debating Tennessee Congresswoman, Marsha Blackburn.

The Washington Examiner describes Congresswoman Blackburn as “a conservative Tennessee Republican and vice chairwoman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has been skeptical about scientific research showing that human activities have altered the world’s climate patterns at an alarming and unnatural rate.”

Just like the eve of the debate at the Creationist Museum, I will be eager to see the results at the same time I will be cowering and hoping that Nye has, again, does his homework.
