Hi Sahotra.

John Wilkins is linking to you( http://scienceblogs.com/evolvingthoughts/2007/07/travel_and_stuff.php ), so this should help boost your traffic.

McLeroy's election has garnered quite a bit of notice around the blogosphere, so I'm happy that this topic has brought you back.

I'm a biology student at UT, and I'd be happy to help you out any way I can (testify at textbook hearings?). I've coordinated a bit with Dr. Hillis about this subject and just recently emailed him about McLeroy. He agrees that we should be expecting another attempt to get creationism or ID in public curriculum.

My tentative prediction is that the Discovery Institute will contact McLeroy to try get their new "textbook" Explore Evolution* included as some sort of supplementary material for high school biology classes.

I'm trying to get my hands on a review copy of EE, but no one from the DI has returned my email yet.
