Scientists denounced the law as a back-door effort to sneak creationism into the classrooms. The bill passed unanimously in the Senate and 94 to 3 in the House, and Gov. Bobby Jindal signed the bill into law last June - despite warnings that it could harm the state's reputation.

  • Moving Beyond the “A” in ASHMarch 01, 2009 | March-April 2009, Volume 6, Issue 2

    I hope that by this time in the New Year your resolutions have not completely waned and that you are still inspired by the possibilities for great things in 2009. I continue to bask in the glow of our historical inauguration and its promise for renewed collaboration and civil discourse. The unprecedented national and international media coverage of the inauguration underscores again how small our world has become, and so it seems especially appropriate that this year at ASH should be marked by new global initiatives that will strengthen our ties with the international hematology community.
