Good news for Louisiana

Despite much huffing and puffing by the Xtian right, yesterday a subset of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to approve some proper biology textbooks for use in schools, which is really good news.  The kids will get to learn about evolution even though the fundies hate it.  Well, probably.  The panel was seven members of the eleven member board.  Tomorrow the whole board will meet to vote the final approval, but since yesterday's vote was 6:1, it should go through.
