Victory in California

Another victory in this "War on Science", this time from Fresno, California:

"A group of parents had sued the El Tejon school district in federal court last week, saying it violated the constitutional separation of church and state by offering "Philosophy of Design," a course taught by a minister's wife that advanced the notion that life is so complex it must have been created by some kind of higher intelligence.

Ayesha N. Khan, legal director for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which represented the parents, said Frazier Mountain High agreed to drop the class." [source: CNN]

Evolution seems to be prevailing. I think the tide has turned.

I think your appraisal about the tide turning is overly optimistic. This victory is another positive sign, but I fear that the creationists are here to stay and will continue to elect like-minded politicians.
