Dateline Dayton

Bryan College in Dayton, Tenn -- yes, it's named after William Jennings Bryan, the attorney who prosecuted high school biology teacher John Scopes in 1925 -- is raising $60,000 to cast a life-size statue of the "Great Commoner." The statue will be placed at the Rhea County Courthouse where the famous Scopes Monkey Trial was acted out.

No word yet on a statue for Clarence Darrow who defended young Scopes.
