Dear Friends of NCSE,

A busy week! A bill requiring equal time for "intelligent design" is
filed in Missouri. A Darwin Day resolution is introduced in the United
States Congress. A documentary about the Texas state board of
education comes to PBS. Not one but two antiscience bills in Oklahoma
and one antiscience bill in Colorado are introduced. Plus a
creationist loses his lawsuit against the Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
and a reminder about Darwin Day.

evolution education in Kentucky in the pages of the Louisville
