Politics and Science Followup

NYTimes article:

George C. Deutsch, the young presidential appointee at NASA who told public affairs workers to limit reporters' access to a top climate scientist and told a Web designer to add the word "theory" at every mention of the Big Bang, resigned yesterday, agency officials said.

Good riddance, but it's only a small victory against those Intelligent Design propagandists; and it won't be a lasting one unless NASA can get its review policy straightened out.

PS- The NY Times article also confirms this appointee's lack of a degree in case you didn't think that my prior post's source was good enough.Mr. Deutsch's resignation came on the same day that officials at Texas A&M University confirmed that he did not graduate from there, as his resume on file at the agency asserted.
