In South Carolina, textbooks are up for review and there’s been some trouble with approving Ken Miller’s book. Miller himself came down to stump for his own book (and the royalties he stands to gain from the state adopting his textbook). OK, so it looks a little weird, since the school board was set to approve other text books that deal with evolution, and no text out there deals with evolution fairly and presents the strengths and weaknesses. So, it looks like Miller’s book was singled out for some odd reason. Still, the idea of the author going down there to stump for it, which has obvious monetary ramifications for him, is also rather unsightly. Miller should have stayed out of it and let the chips fall where they may.
