|I was reading some blogs this morning, and came across this ad on one (VERY) conservative site. It’s for a conservative dating company (whatever) but what’s up with the screeching loony pictured? Is that really attractive? It looks like she giving some poor liberal anti-war hippie a beat down to show her new conservative mate that she’s committed to the cause. Maybe if she didn’t look like she’s about to decapitate someone she wouldn’t need a dating service.
And who approved the use of that stock photo for this company? Yikes.

Sad that this vote was really needed, but grateful that it was a unanimous “yes” to keep teaching evolution in Utah’s classrooms. From an article on firstamendmentcenter.com:
The State Board of Education voted unanimously on Sept. 2 to continue teaching evolution as part of the biology curriculum in Utah’s schools.
In a position statement, the board said the theory of evolution was a mayor unifying scientific concept appropriate for public instruction.
But Utah state Sen. Chris Buttars, R-West Jordan, is countering the board’s position with his “Academic Freedom Act,” a document that looks like draft legislation to present “intelligent design” in classrooms as well.
But unfortunately, it looks like state senator Buttars is still at it. Get this from him:
On Sept. 2, he told the state board the theory of evolution had “more holes than a crocheted bathtub,” adding that barring a discussion of intelligent design was a move akin to censorship.
It’s obvious now to me that Buttars is completely uneducated with respect to biology. I thought he might just be pandering to voters, but with statements like these it pretty obvious he just hasn’t read any books on evolution other than Behe’s.
As reported, the board ignored his request for a two hour session to discuss intelligent design.
HA! Good for them!
