The Election in Dover
The Pennsylvania town of Dover (population 1,815) might have the most important election in America this year. (Every time I hear about the L.A. mayor's race, I'm more glad that I don't live there anymore.) The New York Times reports,
At stake are seven seats on the Dover School Board currently held by supporters of a policy approved last fall requiring high school biology students to be made aware of the "intelligent design" theory, an alternative to Darwin's theory of evolution.
If the pro-evolution candidates are smart, they'll make it clear that it's the anti-evolution members of the board who are politicizing this. The pro-evolution folks should run on a platform of high standards across ALL subjects, not just science.
