Capri Cafaro: Part of it is the rub is that Bill Nye is actually an engineer; he’s not really a science guy. But apparently the folks that are organizing this march got in a little bit of a kerfuffle because they were very concerned that they were projecting this image of stereotypes that only scientists — the only scientists that are out there are white guys.

We need to go back to teaching people how to be American — to assimilating them into an American civilization. We absorb lots of people from lots of places. We can do it again, but part of that requires that we defeat this left-wing mythology that you can be multicultural and still be a single country.

Reporter: So, first of all, my name is Jake [ inaudible ] magazine and, I, despite what so many colleagues might be reporting, I haven’t seen anybody in my community accuse either yourself or anyone on your staff of being anti-semitic. However, what we are concerned about and what we haven’t really heard you address is an uptick in anti-semitism and how in this climate you’re going to take care of it.
