Evolution, or, Don't Call a Theory a Theory

Reported as a "victory for science":
ATLANTA (AP) - A federal judge on Thursday ordered the removal of stickers placed in high school biology textbooks that call [the theory of] evolution "a theory, not a fact," saying they were an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.
No, they're redundant.
The stickers read, "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered."
