Sunday news roundup

I’m pressed for time, so please excuse me for just doing a quick news dump here. I’m taking care of both Florida Citizens for Science and personal stuff before jumping into the car Monday for the trip to Tallahassee.

Orlando Sentinel: 4 extra words in Florida science proposal rankle educators and an editorial that says It’s silly even to debate whether evolution should be taught in schools.

Miami Herald: Carl Hiaasen writes Our reputation for flakiness is at stake.

Tallahassee Democrat: Raise the bar: approve new standards, evolution and all.

The News-Press: Florida science lessons evolve.

Bradenton Herald: State should OK new standards.

I plan on issuing a couple of press releases first thing Monday morning. One will give a full, official FCS statement on the adding of “scientific theory” throughout the standards, and the other will give information on a press conference FCS will host after the Board of Education makes its decision.

I will then drive up to Tallahassee and commence live-blogging. Stay tuned …

    If you go to the Deland Beacons site, you can see our “pal” Larry Fafarman keeping up with the 15th century…. as usual.
