Two points for the first amendment
Jesse at Pandagon found two bits of good news today. Here's one.
A federal judge on Thursday ordered the removal of stickers placed in high school biology textbooks that call evolution "a theory, not a fact," saying they were an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

Here's the other.
Biology teachers at a high school in Dover have rejected the instructions of local officials to read a statement in class today questioning the theory of evolution.

I won't go into my whole routine on creationism in the schools right now (creationism, bad; wall of separation, good), but I will get back to this later.
