You may recall one of my old posts concerning a family who gave $470,000 for the completion of the Answers In Genesis Creation Museum Planetarium in Cincinnati. I sent a news tip to K-Love Radio in the hope that they would mention this on the air.
A few days ago, I was listening to the morning show on K-Love when I heard a Closer Look presentation by Amy Baughman. As it turned out, she had gone to Cincinnati and taken a full tour of the developing Museum with Carl Kerby. She taped the tour and did a three-minute Closer Look all about the new Museum. K-Love put the full, 12-minute version of the presentation online here.
Answers In Genesis wrote a short blogpost about the visit on the Museum Blog. Needless to say, I called K-Love and left a message on Edd Lanane's voicemail to ask whether it was my news tip that triggered the visit.
About 30 minutes later, the phone rings and guess who I'm talking to? Amy Baughman. She told me that they had received basically the same tip a few days before from AiG itself. But, she assured me, they would've done just about the same thing if they had gotten my tip first: "That Museum is wonderful! Have you been up there?"
I was just a little bit shellshocked, but . . . oh well. Brushes with celebrity don't happen every day!
