PA School Board Ousted

The Dover, PA school board members who wanted a statement on Intelligent Design read in biology classes were ousted in yesterday's elections.

"My kids believe in God. I believe in God. But I don't think it belongs in the science curriculum the way the school district is presenting it," said Jill Reiter, 41, a bank teller who joined a group of high school students waving signs supporting the challengers Tuesday.

Another issue raised was the sums of money the court case is chewing up, which is not popular with voters--muddying the waters as far as using the election as a gauge for the electorate's sentiments on the issue of ID in the schools itself. But this is clearly a setback for the ID advocates.

If the issue were truly important to them, the cost of the trial wouldn't bother them. Ever heard anybody complain about the cost of a trial that they believe needed to happen?

I'd say the waters aren't muddied a bit.
