Darwin Day

Yesterday was a mild victory for promoting science, reason, and the future in the United States. Congressman Rush Holt (D-NJ) introduced a resolution to declare February 12th, DARWIN DAY, in honor of the 1809 birthday of one of the greatest scientists.  Sadly, this resolution will not make it far, I fear, but change in government happens by small steps. This motion, coupled with the enacted Golden Goose Award introduced by Nashville's own Jim Cooper to honor federally funded research (my blog post on its origin), are steps that should give us hope.

Here's a very short video of Rep. Holt's introduction of the Darwin Day resolution. It may just energize you a little bit more today. It did for me.
