Save Our Schools From Creationism

I was raised as a creationist. I'd come home from school with a brain full of evolution and an enthusiasm for T-Rex and my mother saw it as her mission to put an end to it. To counter my indoctrination she'd say, "Dinosaurs and people were alive at the same time." The world, she explained, was created in six days. All the animals were there at once. "Why were there no dinosaurs anymore," I asked? Her answer: "They were too big to get on the boat." (Noah's ark.)

Scott beats Cabrera in playoff at Augusta

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Adam Scott barely had time to think about an Australian in a green jacket when a sudden roar from the 18th green and a quick look at the TV reminded him it's never been easy. Not for him in the majors. And certainly not for the Aussies at Augusta National.

Teachers were gifted with nearly $30,000 by the USD 428 Education Foundation when the non-profit group recently awarded 28 minigrants. The amount distributed was higher than any previous year.

Unhide the EPA Global Warming Tax

For decades Democrats have gone to extraordinary lengths to impose new energy taxes. They do not, to put it mildly, have the support of the American people.

They've now reached an unprecedented level of obfuscation: a federal regulatory agency acting without Congress to coerce states into imposing regulations that will bury cost increases in the electricity rate base - and they might get away with it. Congress should therefore act immediately to, if they can't stop what is happening, at least ...
