(not so...) Intelligent Design

Today is an election day for some parts of the country, including the great state of California. But since I don't vote, I won't complain about the results. I'm always annoyed by people who don't vote, and then compained about what politicians do. If you choose not to vote, then you don't really have the right to complain.

Anyways, I'm probably more interested on whether Matt Santos or Arnold Vinick succeeds Josiah "Jed" Bartlet than whether the Governator terminates the nurses, teachers and firefighter unions.

What caught my eye though in looking at news headlines today is the fact that the Topeka Kansas school district has voted to allow the teaching of Intelligent Design in its schools. Topeka, of course, is famous for the "Brown vs Board of Education" Supreme Court decision where so-called "activist" Supreme Court Justices trumpled over states rights and forced desegragation of schools. They are also famous for banning evolution from schools a few years ago. The ban was lifted when some school board members where replaced by those with brains. Obviously, with the introduction of ID, which is a euphemism for creationism, the board makeup had shifted to the right again.
