"Of Pandas and People"

One small step for man; one huge step for mankind:

In Dover, Pennsylvania yesterday, the newly elected school board officially put "intelligent design" to sleep by unanimously rescinding school policy to teach Creationism along with evolution as another "theory" of the origins of the human race. This was not merely an affirmation of science, but of sanity.

After all, can some lunatic come along and claim that the sun revolves around the earth, and call Galileo's work "theoretical?" Bravo to one school board for standing up to the neanderthals, and showing that the only place for "intelligent design" in our schools is in a driver's education class!
