Hi Jeff, I am local too. I am a former student at that department and I left before you came on and teach down the road at CSCC.
Fred Anderle (the moderator) is usually pretty good, but he gets very spiritual and fuzzy sometimes.
If you are not a member, you may want to contact CORI (Central Ohioians for Rational Inquiry, a local skeptics group) and the two Humanist Association chapters in Columbus (www.hcco.org and one run through the UU Church on Weisenheimer. For moral support there is Frank Zindler, a great debater, big local figure, and big man in American Atheists. He is also the tallest atheist I know. ;-) He used to run a TV show on community access cable channel here.

Subject: WOSU AM debate
Some of you may want to tune in and show some support for science when I
debate a creationist on WOSU 820 AM. It is scheduled for next Tuesday at
noon, i.e. 12/12 at 12. It is a call-in show, so I'd be grateful for any
rational calls. I believe the show will also be replayed at 11 pm that
I do not yet know who I will be debating, though it appears it will be
somebody from the "Institute for Creation Research." I don't know if the
mystery surrounding the guest is a product of the producer or ICR, but no
doubt somebody at ICR is reading my book (The Riddled Chain) to get a jump
on things. Once I find out who the creationist guest will be, I'll send out
another note to see if any of you have pointers on how to target the
Thanks and best wishes,
