While I have little confidence in Congress, I do like some of the things our congressmen and senators do. I really like that Congressman Jim Himes (D-CT) is trying to pass a resolution for the government to recognize Charles Darwin's birthday (Feburary 12th) as Darwin Day. While it obviously won't be a federal holiday, I do think it would be wonderful to honor one of the world's most influential and brilliant scientists. But since Congress is controlled by the GOP, I doubt it will happen. The Christian fundamentalists dictate almost every social-issue for Republican politicians, even if it denies proven science.
