Time Mag: Huckabee, Texas, Evolution

The potential Huckabee effect on teaching evolution is now getting the attention I was calling for in an earlier post here. As reported now by Time Magazine

… while Huckabee may no longer be in a position to sway the outcome of the Republican presidential primary/caucus on Tuesday, he does stand to have a profound impact on another crucial, and potentially more controversial, vote that same day.

Next year the Texas State Board of Education will be writing the science curriculum standards for Texas public schoolchildren, and Huckabee may bring enough conservative fundamentalist voters to the polls on March 4 to swing the balance of power on the board to the supporters of creationism.
