New Science Think Tank

Yay! Finally! The good guys - that's us - are finally getting their/our own Discovery Institute!

Ed Brayton over at Dispatches From the Culture Wars has a post on the nifty new think tank with a link to a Washington Post article about it. Go over to Ed's pad and read the quote he excerpted from the Post article. It is soooooooo good.
