Florida: Squeaking By

The Florida legislature failed to pass either of two forms of the Discovery Institute’s draft “academic freedom” bills, and adjourned Friday evening. We have until the legislative session next year to make sure that those in the legislature know exactly what the history and intent of bills like that are. But it doesn’t feel like a “win”; those of us who invested our time in advocating for good science education in Florida essentially got lucky this time.

Read the rest at the Panda’s Thumb.

The Discovery Institute is not pleased.

    Do you think it might be worthwhile to arrange for a screening of A Flock of Dodos very early in the next legislative session, maybe during the very first week they’re back in session? Perhaps it could even be shown for the legislators at the Challenger Center by invitation.

    If we need a video night, “Judgment Day” is a much more important compilation of material. “Flock of Dodos” doesn’t give the full flavor of just how twisted antievolutionists get in pursuance of their objectives, but “Judgment Day” does.
