Arrivederci Nick

Readers of The Panda's Thumb already know this but the NCSE has posted it's official farewell to Nick Matzke, its Public Information Project Director, long time blogger at the Thumb and lawyer wrangler of some considerable note. Particularly insightful was Matthew Chapman appreciation in his book about Dover: 40 Days and 40 Nights:
Bespectacled, in his thirties, he was tall and large and peered down at you with a look of beleaguered doubt, as if to say, 'You're asking me this question about science, but you know and I know that you're not going to understand my answer, so, although I find this stuff fascinating, wouldn't you really rather go for a beer?
Nick is off to pursue his Ph.D. at University of California, Berkeley and will, no doubt, have no more time for anti-evolutionist baiting than John Wilkins did during his studies. Best of luck, Nick and remember, if you measure your time to your doctorate in units less than decades, you'll beat Wilkins!
