The Scopes Trial sign On Saturday, there was a small farmers' market along one side of the courthouse. Unfortunately, the museum was closed for the weekend, but we looked around outside, and had a quick look inside the courthouse.

Rejoicing in this life becomes rejoicing in the next; the one who does good rejoices in both. When you see how pure your actions have been, you will be happy, you will rejoice.
