Frist on teaching "Intelligent Design": "I think today a pluralistic society should have access to a broad range of fact, of science, including faith."

But, but, isn't fact or science. Doesn't that matter anymore?

Related: The Onion reports, "Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held 'theory of gravity' is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling."

Seriously, though.

UPDATE: Hendrik Hertzberg on Bush and the politics of science: "From the beginning, the Bush White House has treated science as a nuisance and scientists as an interest group -- one that, because it lies outside the governing conservative coalition, need not be indulged."

A campaign blog for Janet Wallace, candidate for Greensboro City Council.

Now she's got to make it work. Campaign blogs are not magic election-winning machines. They are tools that have to be used regularly and with purpose.

The website is your own media channel -- let us hear you speak. The blog can be the hub of your campaign, but you have to make it interesting and give us reasons to visit repeatedly.

Link out to draw traffic in. Let us get to know you. Write in your own voice. Tell us where you've been each day -- show us, with pictures that you post to the blog.

I'm waiting for a local candidate to really get it right with a blog.
