I was browsing the website for the Committee of Skeptical Inquiry, and turned up a (edit: this was just published!) article involving the shoehorning of the textbook Of Pandas and People into the Dover area curriculum. Have a look.

The author was one of the expert witnesses when the case went to court, and saw everything as it happened. It's slanted in tone, but I still trust it in total, considering the publication and the wealth of footnotes and cross-references. It's also a nutshell example of all the hallmarks of the vocal, aggressively political Fundamentalist groups trying to force things to go their way: hot air, propaganda, shenanigans, and then loud declarations that they were wronged when none of those worked.

The whole thing is a little bit of old news now, since it happened in 2005, but since textbooks--and that supplemental work in particular--were just discussed here I thought it might be relevant.

Let me know if this is too outdated or if I need to remove and/or post as addendum in another thread, please.
