Today’s Doonesbury is a hoot. The man is, thank Ceiling Cat, fiercely pro-evolution. Click to enlarge!
Bonus: I got Trudeau’s permission to reproduce his famous “antibiotic resistance/creationism” cartoon (click the link!) for a book review I did for Nature, and he autographed it for me!

I’ll send a pdf to anyone who emails me to request it.

Trudeau has been my favorite for many years.
He just gets better and better–which shouldn’t even be possible!
I love Doonesbury! Lucky you to have a siggy with his toon. I’m jealous!
