    On the Wednesday, the 13th, "Talk of the Nation", on NPR, had a program
    about ID and the Ohio school system; the following is a synopsis found on
    their website at
    Michael J. Behe
    *Professor of Biochemistry, LeHigh University, Bethlehem, PA
    *Author, Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution
    (Touchstone, 1998)

    David J. Haury
    *Associate Professor, Science Education, Ohio State University
    *Director, ERIC Clearinghouse for Science, Mathematics, and Environmental

    Deborah Owens-Fink
    *Elected Member, Ohio State Board of Education
    *Professor of Marketing, University of Akron, OH

    Ernan McMullen
    *Professor of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Notre Dame,
    South Bend IN

    Ohio public schools are battling over how to teach the different views of
    the origin of life. Some educators believe the theory of "Intelligent
    Design" deserves a place in the school curriculum because it's a science.
    But critics say ID is not science at all. So, what is intelligent design?
    Why do some educators find it so objectionable?
    The discussion went pretty well, though perhaps a few too many Fundies
    called in to "help" Behe out.
    Those with Real Audio can hear it at the site cited.
