Florida Feels the Effects of Hurricane Dover

Daniel A. Ricker, who writes the "Watchdog Report" for the Miami Herald reports on comments by Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on intelligent design in the wake of the Dover decision. According to Ricker, Bush wants the science standards to become more rigorous -- and raising the standards should take priority over discussing whether intelligent design has a place in the public schools' curriculum.

Does Bush believe in Darwin's theory of evolution?

"Yeah, but I don't think it should actually be part of the curriculum, to be honest with you," Bush replied. "And people have different points of view and they can be discussed at school, but it does not need to be in the curriculum.''

Thanks to reader Gerry Lukos, who publishes the Evolutionary Times blog for the tip.
