smiley - sigh Don't get me started on the Texas SBOE.


I was listening to NPR the other day and they actually had the temerity, or maybe the ignorance, to invite Don McLeroy, former chair and chief religious ideologue, on for a discussion regarding the current SBOE minimizing slavery and white supremacy as the leading cause of the Civil War. They tactfully skirted his past stance of supporting young earth creationism into our science books.

He's the star of the documentary, _The Revisionaries_.
