Last week, Cheryl reported that Mississippi is the first state this year to be visited by the Ghost of Intelligent Design known as "Academic Freedom" legislation.
Apparently, some members of the Missouri legislature did not like the spectre of Mississippi being the only state possessed by anti-evolution legislation this year. According to the NCSE, eleven Republican representatives recently tried out their skills as ghost whisperers by summoning the ghost of Intelligent Design into Missouri science classrooms via House Bill 1651.
The bill's chief sponsor, Robert Wayne Cooper, introduced similar bills in 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2009. All of Cooper's previous bills passed away.
May they rest in peace.
