All of this rain reminds me of the Noah's ark story I wrote that recently ran in the Morning News. I've wanted to write about the enduring appeal of the destructive Genesis story for a few years, after reading the excellent novel The Preservationist by David Maine. So, a few weeks ago when I caught a commercial for Evan Almighty, I knew I had a timely reason for writing.
A few other papers ran the story (editors across the country are always looking for non-local religion stories on the wire to fill their Saturday or Sunday pages). At least one reader wasn't very happy, as you can read here if you scroll down a bit.
