I don’t know who chunkdz is over at Telic Thoughts, but he’s clearly a dickhead. He decided to write about the death of my friend Skip Evans and the only thing he could find to say was to take a shot at me and several other people who knew Skip and cared about him.
Apparently, the most memorable thing he ever did was to steal the dissertation of notable creationist Kent Hovind. At least that’s what PZ Myers, Ed Brayton, Wesley Elsberry, and Nick Matzke all seemed most tickled about in their brief memorials. Not one of these fellow culture warriors bothered to send even the most cursory condolences to Skip’s family.
You have no idea what I did or didn’t say to Skip’s family. I mentioned the Kent Hovind dissertation because that is what most people who didn’t know him would be most likely to remember (I should have mentioned Project Steve as well, which was originally his idea). But who the fuck are you to tell the people who actually knew and loved Skip what they have to say, or where they have to say it? Go fuck yourself, asshole.
