And so we join Kansas and Pennsylvania

I probably shouldn’t call attention to this, but the local paper is reporting that Rick “The Coif” Perry has come out advocating that Texas schools teach intelligent design in science class along with evolutionary theory. In The Pink and Pink Dome took note along with and Gibberish who points out some things you can do to get a jump on this nonsense. Please. Tell me we didn’t beat Florida in the race to return to medieval education.

    The genius of Rick Perry is that ID ties directly into Texas’ aggressive economic development strategy. You see, when Samsung and the like come looking for qualified workers to support their multi-billion dollar tech investment, Perry can proudly offer them an inexhaustable supply of graduates who can pray for technological breakthroughs and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques. Because everyone _knows_ that affordable flat panel technology is simply too wonderful and complex to have evolved from human hands.
