John Scopes on Higher Education

A friend who watched Alleged last night for the first time -- and enjoyed, as I did -- emails us to point out this great quote, noted in the film, from John Scopes of Monkey Trial fame. It's from Scopes's own memoirs of his history-making experience in Dayton, Tennessee:

I have often said that there is more intolerance in higher education than in all the mountains of Tennessee.
Well said. Source: John T. Scopes, The Center of the Storm (New York: Henry Holt & Company, 1967), p. 276.
