Tuesday: Hili dialogue (and lagniappe)

June 9, 2015 • 7:45 am

Today I fly to Toronto to give a book talk tomorrow to the Centre for Inquiry chapter there. I’ll also be on the t.v. talk show “The Agenda” with Steve Paikin, taped tomorrow. It’ll be a busy day. Then I fly back to Chicago on Thursday to start preparing for the Big Road Trip. Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is trying to preach the Golden Rule, but she’s doing it rong!

Hili: Love thy neighbour!
A: Or what?
Hili: Or else!


In Polish:
Hili: Kochaj bliźniego swego!
Ja: Bo co?
Hili: Bo zobaczysz!

And. . .lagniappe! reader Ken Phelps, who sent four photos (I’ll post two) of the Unholy Duo in their Saturday-evening conversation.

Krauss & Dawkins. Hand held with available light from back of room = low resolution, but still got some personality.

    1. Alas, no. The commandment is for others, not for the one who is pronouncing it.

  1. Steve Paikin from TVO is a very good interviewer.

    Unlike the odious Evan Solomon from CBC, Steve Paikin does not attempt to constantly inject his opinions into the interview.

    1. I was just about to write: Paikin is a good interviewer.;) I’m looking forward to Jerry’s appearance.

    2. I agree also – I try to watch the Agenda most nights, though I generally switch off if the topic is only relevant to Ontario (BC resident) I’m looking forward to seeing this segment. Dr. Coyne, any idea when it’ll be aired?
