At the request of Michael Zimmerman of the Clergy Letter Project, I am passing along the following alert to those who care about science education in this country, particularly in the 'Sportsman's Paradise', the Pelican State of Louisiana:

Please support Barbara Forrest and the Louisiana Coalition for Science in opposing SB 733, a bill which amends Louisiana law to allow a foot in the door for the promotion of the Discovery Institute's 'Wedge Strategy'. As they correctly point out in this press release, if Governor Bobby Jindal fails to put the kibosh on this legislation, then sooner or later they are going to end up in federal court as the DI's catspaw, and it's going to cost them. Unfortunately, given Jindal's public expression of sympathy for ID (and thus, indirectly, for the DI), I don't think that's going to happen.
