Signs of Intelligence
It seems that IDeologists may not all be lacking in the essential ingredient for their "theory":
The [Florida] House's insistence on language [in the so-called "academic freedom" legislation] the Senate already has rejected left John West, the [Discovery Institute's] associate director, perplexed.
"It makes me wonder whether some of the people who are for it are actually trying to scuttle it," West said. He's worried because the legislative session is set to end Friday. If the two chambers cannot resolve their differences in the remaining four days, the bill will die.
While I may still turn out to be wrong, this has all the signs of an attempt by the legislators who are nominally in favor of the law to kill the proposal without looking like they are doing so.
Anyway, go on over to Florida Citizens for Science for more on today's events.
