A current free-speech case resembles the Scopes Monkey Trial in reverse. The setting is similar-a rural community known for its shimmering lakes and rolling farms, a beleaguered but earnest teacher determined to challenge the status quo, and a pair of high-powered lawyers duking it out in court. Only instead of being lampooned for criticizing creationism, as was Tennessee teacher John Scopes in 1925, this time the teacher is being punished for critiquing evolution.
