The NASA Brownie takes his leave

Update from the recent hijinks at NASA where intelligent design politics had been making a comeback, A Young Bush Appointee Resigns His Post at NASA - New York Times:
George C. Deutsch, the young presidential appointee at NASA who told public affairs workers to limit reporters' access to a top climate scientist and told a Web designer to add the word "theory" at every mention of the Big Bang, resigned yesterday, agency officials said.

Mr. Deutsch's resignation came on the same day that officials at Texas A&M University confirmed that he did not graduate from there, as his résumé on file at the agency asserted.

Officials at NASA headquarters declined to discuss the reason for the resignation.
Occasionally Karl loses one of his minions.

That's a shame...
