UP: UW-Madison. The National Institutes of Health awards the university a $41 million, five-year grant to improve the way the public learns about new medical research. The grant is believed to be the second-largest ever received by the UW's School of Medicine and Public Health.
DOWN: Madison school district. The schools send a religious flyer home with 2,000 elementary students, prompting a complaint by the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The flyer, from Grace Lutheran Church, encouraged parents to send their children to Sunday school, stating, "Don't neglect the 3 Rs: Religion, relationships and rejoicing!" The school district says it allows a wide range of organizations to send flyers home with children. Sounds like an open invitation to the Freedom From Religion folks.
