Indisputable proof of natural selection:

The voters of Dover, Pennsylvania, exercised their right of natural selection and voted out their entire evolutionarily unfit, poorly adapted School Board. In a brillliant display of Intelligent Design, they voted in a full slate of science-minded candidates, perhaps in response to being dubbed the "Dayton, Tennessee" of Pennsylvania.

The good news for the ousted school board members is that they can probably find work in Kansas, which at the exact same time was renewing its status as laughingstock of not just the midwest or the U.S., but pretty much the whole world by insisting the their students be "taught the controversy" in the name of "free speech" and "intellectual freedom."

You win some, you lose some. But you know--I feel a mysterious hand at work here, directing us towards...oh nevermind.

I just don't know whether to laugh or cry.

p.s.: Way to go, Virginia. Once again, I'm proud of my Old Dominion. And don't call it a state, buddy--it's a commonwealth.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's a commonwealth... :D

But hey, my vote counted! Woo!
