Even more aftermath of votes of Texas science standards

The Houston Chronicle has a new editorial that isn't kind to the recent votes of the Texas State Board of Education:

But, as if to remind the world that evolution is indeed a long, slow process, the social conservatives on the board are still attempting — in the face of all reliable evidence to the contrary — to keep the bogus controversy over evolution alive and to sabotage, yet again, Texas’ chances of being taken seriously in the realms of science and education.

And this blog in the Springfield News Sun in Ohio asks:

Does it concern you that decisions in other areas could affect the information Ohio students have in their books?

May be worth checking the comments over the next few days.
