Taste the Democracy

Any moron on the Internet can blog about an awful piece of anti-science legislation pending in his home state. But it’s highly unlikely those in power happen to be lurking here. What to do?

The obvious answer is to write to one’s state representative to urge her to oppose the bill, should it come to a vote. (Similar bills have been floated in the past few years, but none ever came to a vote.) Democracy in action, baby.

Of course, the letter was far less snarky than aforementioned blog post. And I didn’t even get into the constitutional issues or the Dover trap that the bill would set for the schools. Instead, I focused on how the bill advocates bad science.
