the effort to repeat the state's antievolution law, while Barbara
Forrest explained in detail why the effort is necessary.

expedition down the Grand Canyon. Tennessee's antievolution
legislation was criticized twice in the pages of the Knoxville News
Sentinel. Louisiana's antievolution law is the target of a repeal
effort -- led by a high school senior. And the first issue of Reports

bill in New Mexico is dead. NCSE presents a preview of Berkman and
Plutzer's Evolution, Creationism, and the Battle to Control America's
Classrooms, a spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Education
claims -- wrongly -- that creationism is included in the Alabama state
science standards, and the Indiana Department of Education offers its
voice for evolution.
