Can't you keep my hand to yourself?!

  "Is our children learning?"
Definitely not in Kansas, where they successfully redefined science to include supernatural explanations of natural phenomena. From that article:
"This is a great day for education. This is one of the best things that we can do. This absolutely teaches more about science," said Steve E. Abrams, the Kansas board chairman who shepherded the conservative Republican majority that overruled a 26-member science committee and turned aside the National Academy of Sciences and the National Science Teachers Association.
Wow. What an insidious, evil statement. More brainwashing, please! Hooray!

At least someone set the record straight for those poor, confused Kansas schoolkids:
"This is a sad day, not only for Kansas kids, but for Kansas," said Janet Waugh, who voted against the new standards. "We're becoming a laughingstock, not only of the nation, but of the world."
A laughingstock indeed.

Thankfully some people in Dover have a clue about the difference between science and religion. According to the judge's decision:
"Any asserted secular purposes by the board are a sham and are merely secondary to a religious objective," he said.
Hello, intelligent design people? Are you listening?
