Two good topics

Pharyngula (another organismal biologist, yay!) has some excellent recent posts:

1) Missouri has introduced an Intelligent Design / Creationism bill. Pharyngula sums it up best by calling it "another stupid bill." See more information in Pharyngula's three excellent posts:the first post summarizes the bill and includes contact information for the bill's legislative sponsor, the second post discusses the bill more, and the third post examines the organization that is thought to be sponsoring the bill.

2) Pharyngula also has an excellent two-post review of Carl Zimmer's new book Soul Made Flesh (see the two posts here: first post, second post). I absolutely loved Zimmer's Parasite Rex, so now I'm looking forward to picking up a copy of Soul Made Flesh.
