There is hope for humanity

From today's New York Times:

All eight members up for re-election to the Pennsylvania school board that had been sued for introducing the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in biology class were swept out of office yesterday by a slate of challengers who campaigned against the intelligent design policy.

Among the losing incumbents on the Dover, Pa., board were two members who testified in favor of the intelligent design policy at a recently concluded federal trial on the Dover policy: the chairwoman, Sheila Harkins, and Alan Bonsell.

Your title should be qualified to read, "There is hope for humanity in Pennsylvania, but not Kansas"

Those crazy Jayhawks on the State Board of Education approved a curriculum that cast doubt upon the theory of evolution yesterday in a 6-4 vote. I'm searching for a link.

An update on Dover, Pa. ...

All the residents there are going to Hell, according to Pat Robertson.

I guess it isn't good enough that they overwhelmingly voted for Bush last year.

You can watch the video of Robertson's comments here.
