TFN and Bill Nye the Science Guy

Bill Nye the Science Guy, or BNtSG for short as some of us at the office have been calling him, is an ideal choice this year. The Texas State Board of Education has already started the process of adopting new science textbooks, and as we know all too well, these adoptions can get contentious.
