Second day of meetings on science standards

The public testimony is over, but the Texas State Board of Education meeting from yesterday is still going on in Austin today. Blog coverage again at Evo.Sphere, Thoughts From Kansas, and I missed yesterday's posts from Texas Freedom Network (first, second, third; "expert" testimony, first second, third). Wish I'd been there to see David Hillis in action:

Too bad we can’t type faster. Hillis is kicking butt and taking names. One anti-evolution argument after another bites the dust in his presentation.

Meanwhile, more coverage on yesterday's hearings from the New York Times. It's better than AP's article, but still tends to create the "two equal and opposite views and gee, they both seem valid" structure that journalists often create in an effort to seem objective.
