Something needs to be done about this immediately.

Anti-Evolution Kansan Runs Unopposed For National Schools Post
New York Times | Posted May 18, 2007 09:35 PM

The National Association of State Boards of Education will elect officers in July, and for one office, president-elect, there is only one candidate: a member of the Kansas school board who supported its efforts against the teaching of evolution.

Scientists who have been active in the nation's evolution debate say they want to thwart his candidacy, but it is not clear that they can.

Why can't they? What the hell is going on here?

" Some scientists hope that when states submit their votes, they will write in someone else. One possible candidate is Sam Schloemer, a retired businessman from Cincinnati who won a seat on the Ohio board last November with the help of scientists who organized to defeat creationist candidates.

Mr. Schloemer, a Republican, said in a telephone interview that he had learned of Mr. Willard’s unopposed candidacy a few days before. He said he had no particular desire for the office, but added, “I would rather serve than see someone of his persuasion represent school boards across the country.” "


" Patricia Princehouse, a professor of evolutionary biology at Case Western Reserve University and a leader of the scientists’ efforts, said she hoped there would be many write-in votes. “Whether they decide it counts or not is up to Nasbe,” Professor Princehouse said, using the acronym for the national association. “But people do not have to endorse Willard’s candidacy.”

The association’s bylaws make no provision for write-ins, said Ms. Welburn, the executive director. "

Looks like even if a Schloemer write-in campaign gave him more votes than the anti-evolution Willard, a write-in campign is not recognized by the board.
"Mr. Willard’s only opponent in the race withdrew for personal reasons after the period for nominations had closed."

Willard's opponent dropped out for "personal reasons" after it was too late to replace him, and left Willard unchallenged for the seat. Coincidence?

Man, these guys are scary. I don't understand why we can't get anyone to run against this moron. If they want to teach creationism in the private schools, that's ok with me. It doesn't belong in the public school system. If the religious right wants to have control over the public schools, fine...the private religious schools should also be forced to abide by the rules of the public schools...and pay taxes!

(Warning: Shameless promotion of my own blog) Not that my blog is anywhere near as good as this one...this one is amazing!

I did a small blurb on this on my blog.

That's right, no buying that sorry excuse for pizza dough at your local grocery store; we're talking the rеal dеаl hегe.
It ѕhould bе spгеad onto the рizza stone oг ρаn in a layеr less thаn an inch thick,
