I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design to be taught along with the theory of Evolution. I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them.

I wrote back that I wouldn?t on the grounds that the issue in question hadn?t been released in the UK, though it has in the past couple of weeks. Was she a crank? That?s the easy answer but there were a couple of comments that made me think we should think seriously about the issue of race and recontruction of ancient peoples.

I found this while browsing other peoples’ blogs.

Things I’d do if I had the powers of Superman –

1. Skydive naked and chuteless into a major city, using my flight powers to make sure I didn’t land on anyone, but not using them to save myself from smacking the ground right in front of a crowd.
