Third World country passes freedom from academics bill

The Louisiana House passed a bill designed to bring dishonor and disrepute upon that state. It's an unintelligent bill, a foolish bill, an ill-thought-out bill. I think the bill has the intention of allowing teachers to provide supplemental materials to their science [sic] classes, materials that regurgitate the same tired old arguments about the "weaknesses" of evolution, arguments that have long been debunked.

I suspect Jack Chick has a lobby presence in the halls of Louisiana government.

Gov. Jindal signed the thing. Nuts.

(Of course, that didn't keep the yahoos from starting a petition to recall him!)

There has been some talk of Jindal being chosen as a running mate for McCain--I don't know how seriously that is being taken (some say his youth may adversely highlight McCain's age). But if he were picked, I'd like to see a veep debate in which the issue of science education was brought up.
