'Tennessee Could Become a Laughingstock': To the Point Tackles 'Academic Freedom Versus Science'

Posted By on Wed, Apr 11, 2012 at 5:00 AM

Hey everybody, Tennessee in the news! Must be our beautiful landscape, our thriving arts, our — nope, it's our dumbass state legislature again. Yesterday, nationally syndicated public radio program To the Point (which airs on WPLN 90.3-FM at 8 p.m. weeknights) took up the "Monkey Bill" that our feckless governor can't bring himself to sign or veto.

Guests include noted porn recognition instructor and conservative activist David Fowler and Vanderbilt professor Larisa DeSantis, who led a petition effort urging the governor to veto the bill in question.

Just try to un-cringe after you hear Pepperdine University professor Edward Larson say, "The people of Tennessee don't believe in evolution."
