Dayton, Tenn - The Scopes "Monkey" trial opens= 7/10/1925

        Oli Daytoni tuollainen tienoo
        Miss' ei ollunna tietoa hienoo
        Siellä yhtään ei ne tykkää
        Ne kehitys kerskaile
        Ne nousivat kaikkien raivoon
        "Heittäkää se vietävä kaivoon
        Ja nikkaroikoon, lempo soikoon
        Ukkoja akkoja apinoistaan."

                Dayton is a place
                without much learning
                There they don't want to deal
                With the idea of evolution
                They flew into a rage:
                "Throw the rascal in a well
                By the devil, let him make men and women from monkeys"

        "Daytonin Apinajuttu" (Monkey business in Dayton) by Antti Syrjäniemi,
         Library of Congress LP, LBC 10 Songs of War and History

Very good. Yes. Recorded commercially on Victor in NY City in 1929. The notes note this song was nearly unique in praising the Darwin side. All the country (etc.) sides cut took Bryan's side. Of course, Bryan was widely popular as a preacher and Darrow was widely demonized by fundamentalists. Facts and science were never an issue.

Nothing has changed; it is sad that some 43% of USians (depending on the poll) haven't learned anything new since then. That is, they still don't understand ("believe in") ee vo-lution.

I don't select USians alone to criticize here. There are many fundies in the world. Even Israel.
