Following up on my rant about the Smithsonian’s deal with the devil Discovery Institute, it seems the Director now wants to put some space between the museum and Discovery’s stink. Paul at Pharyngula has the details.

Since the museum administration is doing the best they can to correct a very stupid mistake, I guess I’ll be renewing my Smithsonian membership after all.

Update: The Post has more on the Smithsonian tap dance.
