Following up on the earlier bloggage about the Texas Education Agency and its curious position on scientific neutrality, Bluedaze and PDiddie round up more reactions and commentary, to which I’ll add Wonkette (never a good sign for a government agency to be blogged about by Wonkette), Wired News, and the Waco Trib’s John Young:
When it comes to explaining human origins and early man, don’t forget:

Long before man figured out that lumber could be burned to illuminate and heat the cave, he knew that he could wield lumber to clobber his fellow man.

Finally, the most interesting thing I’ve read on this topic comes from Hope, who knew TEA hatchetwoman Lizzette Reynolds from several years ago, and was surprised to hear of her role in this fiasco. Check it out.
UPDATE: The Chron jumps in as well.
