Thought Policing In Action

Evolution Major Vanishes From Approved Federal List - New York Times:
"Evolutionary biology has vanished from the list of acceptable fields of study for recipients of a federal education grant for low-income college students."

The Ed. Dept. says it was dropped off the list by mistake, but nothing else was dropped, and that makes for a very suspicious "coincidence" to accept. I think they were hoping nobody would notice except for the students who would have to chose some other major and might not know they should complain about the omission. Guess they weren't thinking about the colleges and professors who offer the major. Actually, I would guess they weren't "thinking" at all.
