Mark Perakh, a fire, and a flaming

Mark Perakh is an astonishing person with whom I have communicated but never met. Mark studied physics in the old USSR, escaping under dire circumstances to the US. Recently, his house burnt down, and he lost untold amounts of papers and other material, mostly done by hand before the era of computers. Wesley Elsberry has blogged this well. My thoughts go to Mark and his family.

Ed Brayton takes this as the starting point for a demolition of the morally bankrupt and as usual completely ignorant attacks on Mark by a moron by the name of Dave Scott, to whom Dembski recently gave control of his blog. If you had any doubt about either the lack of morality or competence of IDevotees, go read.
