Interesting article

by Stanley Fish in the Chronicle, on the rise of religion and the history of separation of church and state. This touches on things I'm thinking about for my next book--though at the rate I'm going, I'm never going to finish either of the books I'm working on now & there won't be a next book at all... but I think it will be something more crossover, less academic, a book about the Enlightenment that will explain how and why that term is so often invoked in contemporary American political discourse (usually as something that has just recently ended, with the rise of militant Islam and fundamentalist Christianity).
