A Welcome Outbreak of Sanity

Georgia school chief drops planned ‘evolution’ ban

Georgia’s school superintendent Thursday dropped plans to remove the word “evolution” from the state’s high school science curriculum.

“I will recommend to the teacher teams that the word ‘evolution’ be put back in the curriculum,” Kathy Cox said in a statement.

Now, if we can get Georgia to change its mind about glossing over the near-century of American history which includes the Civil War, we might be on to something.

One Vote Majority

President’s Statement on Massachusetts’ Court Ruling
Statement by the President

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

Today’s ruling of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court is deeply troubling. Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman. If activist judges insist on re-defining marriage by court order, the only alternative will be the constitutional process. We must do what is legally necessary to defend the sanctity of marriage.

Wouldn’t a Presidential statement against “judicial activism” be a little more resonant if it came from a President who wasn’t in the White House because of it? I mean, if anyone should appreciate the value of a “one-vote majority” judicial ruling, it should be President Bush.

Oh. I see. That’s different. Well. It’s always different with him, now, isn’t it.
