For the Love of Science

I don't usually read the opinions section of the newspaper, but considering I'm snowed in today I had a little more time on my hands.  The first line of Leonard Pitts, Jr.'s column caught my attention:
ITEM: Only 28 percent of high school science teachers 
consistently follow National Research Council guidelines 
encouraging them to present students with evidence of evolution. 
Thirteen percent "explicitly advocate creationism or intelligent design.''

That statistic is staggering.  
The stupid giant is spot on.
