Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" If you know us, you know we've been publishing posh prose since 2005. Even so, today is a banner day.
In the launch edition of a new online magazine called The Smart Set, you will find, among the articles, a story about the Scopes Monkey Trial by Anne Johnson. So today I'd love it if you stroll on over there and check out my old chum John T. Scopes and his little problem with teaching evolution.
Since you're one of my singularly intellectual readers, you'll no doubt know that the original Smart Set magazine was a forum for H. L. Mencken, who became its co-editor with George Jean Nathan in 1914.
The new online product retains the feel of that clever, hip monthly, and I am intensely proud to be part of its launch. I hope to write more for it in the future, if Mencken's successor will have me.
