ID Meets "Groundhog Day"

"Even with the latest [Dover] court decision, don't expect the furor over intelligent design to end," reports Gannett's Oseye Boyd in The Star Press. "Several Indiana lawmakers have surveyed their constituents about adding intelligent design to the science curriculum. Once the General Assembly convenes this year, Rep. Bruce Borders, R-Jasonville, has shown interest in creating legislation in support of teaching intelligent design in public schools. The bill could have backing from Democrats and Republicans alike."

"Indiana science teachers follow academic standards set forth by the state," writes Boyd. "And those current standards are considered to be some of the best in the nation, according to a report card from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, an educational nonprofit that advocates high education standards in Washington, D.C."

Now we know how Bill Murray's character, Phil Conners, must have felt in "Groundhog Day."
