Talk:Inherit the Wind
- As long as I find the time, I'm going to be expanding this article quite a bit, and doing away with the large direct quotes in the process.
- I agree (I think this is your thinking) that simply calling it a "classic" implies something good, which implication is best avoided. On the other hand, though, we need to recognise and acknowledge things like it being considered a classic, rather than pretend that this isn't the case.
- I nearly reverted your changes to the introduction, thinking that the new wording was a tad awkward and was getting into criticism before description, but the more I thought about it, the more I concluded that your wording was better than what was there before. I still think it could be improved, but that might come with the expansion and taking a rather different approach to the introduction.

I'd like to point out that "Inherit the Wind" this is not an attempt to portray the Scopes Monkey Trial accurately and in doing so distorting and fictionalizing it. Rather, it is really a play based off the Scopes Monkey Trial, using the real-life trial for certain plot elements. I suggest a change to present a more accurate picture of the play.

- The play is pawned off as historically based to many students and adult viewers. But it's liberally biased and thoroughly false, and its promoters don't admit that.--Andy Schlafly 10:15, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
