An early Christmas present
The judge in the Dover Intelligent Design trial has ruled that "it is unconstitutional to teach ID as an alternative to evolution in a public school science classroom." PZ Myers is all over the story, and The Panda's Thumb has a ton of good posts. Orac, Wesley Elsberry, BoingBoing, The Education Wonks, and Scalzi have all chimed in as well. News stories on the topic abound; the Guardian's story has a satisfyingly high proportion of background to length. And, if you want even more, the judge's full decision is online (PDF), though I suspect you could recreate it by piecing together the quotes in all the articles above.
