Free Press

The Associated Baptist Press has a perhaps surprisingly fair article on the recent Texas science standards kerfuffle by its managing editor and Washington bureau chief, Robert Marus, starting off with its (correct) comparison of "literal "young-Earth" creationism and its close relative, intelligent-design theory."

Dan Quinn, communications director for the Texas Freedom Network, is given more space than one of the usual suspects from the Discovery Institute, John West, and gets in the last word in the article, except for this paragraph, which is less-than-favorable to the ID ploy:

Don McLeroy (R-College Station), a creationist who serves as the elected board's chairman, said textbook companies are on notice that "they'll have to get their textbooks approved by us in a few years," the Dallas Morning News reported.

Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I'm keeping a copy in case it changes.
