Texas is seemingly going to add intelligent design theory to their
biology texts.  There is a growing internet backlash starting to this
at http://www.petitiononline.com/textbook/

This is somewhat of a problem because publishers usually only make one
national textbook in science, though many publishers compete for the
market.  But the one that texas buys will over time influence the whole
nation as it will provide a legitimate basis for whatever is in that
text, including intelligent design.
