Thank you, Margaret Thatcher (or her people)! Margaret Thatcher's people have said she will not meet with Sarah Palin because she is nuts. Finally, people are speaking their minds. I guess it takes the British to tell it like it is!

Evolution critics are attempting to change school policy through legislation. They are promoting "academic freedom" bills that would encourage or require public school teachers to challenge evolution theory in their classrooms, the Wall Street Journal reports. Many of these critics are religious fanatics that believe in "creationism" or, as they like to call it, "intelligent design". This is the belief that man was created by God, as he is today. The advocates of intelligent design have been very militant about assuring that their theory is taught in public schools. My church, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, has been challenging these groups, most notably, when they sent an open letter to the Kansas School Board requesting that the Church of the FSM theory of creation be included with intelligent design as an alternative theory. FSM church argues that their theory is just as valid as an alternative theory as intelligent design is. I agree.
Currently, "academic freedom" bills are being considered in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Michigan and Missouri. This is a serious threat to educational integrity in our schools. Where am I? And, how did I get in this handbasket?

A Kaiser Family Foundation poll found that 17% of respondents either was or knew someone who married solely for access to their spouse's health benefits. And the GOP wants us to believe that same sex marriage somehow cheapens the sanctity of marriage.
