virus: Dennett on TV tonight (in Seattle anyway)

I'm going to watch Daniel Dennett on TV tonight on our local PBS station
(Ch. 9). It's part of a series called (I think) "A Glorious Accident"
about evolution of the human condition.

I don't think much of the interviewer. Last night they showed him
interviewing Gould, Sheldrake (woo-woo!), and Oliver Sachs (sp?) the
"Awakenings" guy. He asked frustratingly bad questions that I didn't
think brought out the uniqueness of the interviewees at all. For
instance, as much as I disagree with some of Gould's theories, I
probably would have answered the interview questions much the same way.

Probably worth a watch if it's on in your area.
