W00t! Great news from the Lone Star State: two seats on the State School Board were being challenged by creationists, and both creationists lost (free registration may be required to read that story). Yeehaw! As they say down there. So the two incumbents, one a moderate Republican and the other a Democrat, retain their seats. Texans, you may breathe a momentary sigh of relief. But only momentary. Feel that itch, that icy cold twitch right between your shoulder blades? That's from the stare of creationists, who still have you in their crosshairs. Never forget that the forces of antiscience, of antireality, never rest. They may be stinging in their defeat, but you can bet your last head of cattle that the creationists will regroup and do what they can to undermine science. But for now, rejoice. Congratulations to those of you who fought to keep the medievalists at bay. Good work. Tip o' the ten gallon hat top BABloggee Christian Burnham for the news.
