The American Freedom Alliance will be allowed to present a pro-intelligent design event at the California Science Center, two years after it filed a lawsuit against the center.

Former Utah governor and GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman on Thursday used Twitter to respond to comments made by Texas Governor Rick Perry on global warming and evolution. If his strategy was an attempt to set himself apart from his opponents, it may have worked.
