So, it looks like Ben Stein, who was originally slated to collect an honorary degree and give the commencement address at the University of Vermont, has been “expelled” from these honors, no doubt due to another mean old conspiracy of those “Big Science” bullies.

Well, maybe not quite. Daniel Fogel, although disappointed to hear that Ben “science leads you to killing people” Stein would be unable to receive the honorary degree or to serve as Commencement speaker, informed Dawkins of the development, whereupon he probably wasn’t exactly disappointed. (Obviously the Big Science Conspiracy isn’t very good at keeping one of its best known figureheads in the loop.)
