the problems are not necessarily over: McLeroy is still on the board. He's just been given a vote of no confidence to be the head of the SBoE. I don't know if Perry can just ignore the vote and re-nominate, but considering what we know of the Governor, the next person will probably be just as ideologically driven. Especially considering the pool of YEC's from which he has to choose. Let's hope he hears the science-driven community's disdain and appoints someone who will listen to the experts.

I went to the AU site too, and can't express enough how dismayed I have been with McLeroy and that whole bloc of creationists that have been trying to undermine science standards in Texas.

That he still got 19 votes out of 30 means that he was only one vote short of being confirmed despite his abhorrently backward agenda. My gratitude to all who got on the phone or emailed their senators about this clown.

Unfortunately, we'll still have him on the board, and the ball goes back to Gov. Goodhair now to pick McLeroy's replacement. My confidence level is not exactly high about getting a competent replacement.

I've just been reading about Mr. McLeroy at the Americans United website. My word, how on earth did we get this simpleton in that job in the first place?! He's not only a fundamentalist fool, he's anti-science. Such people were bad enough when we were dominant in the field of science; today, when we are importing doctors and engineers from, e.g., India, we need halfwits like McLeroy like new holes in our heads. (He obviusly already has a few in his own.) Given a second term, he might even have brought about what Scopes fought against in Tennessee lo these many (almost 85) years ago. Intelligent design my arse! Dumbass chaos if you ask me. If "God" is so intelligent, why can't I hear above 16,000 cycles like my dog? (Oh, I forgot; dog is God spelled backward.)

The TX Senate has just voted to reject McLeroy's nomination for a 2nd term as head of the SBOE!

Vanessa, I know how you feel. I'm currently living in Victoria. I have family here and some family issues I'm dealing with. Nothing major though.
This is a real reactionary town. A ton of them still don't understand how McCain lost the election....
Go figure...

James, Georgie wasn't born there... he was brought there by this parents...
Of course, had I had anything to do with that I'd have left him at the
His other siblings were born here.
I saw Angles and Demons. Thought it was a good movie. The Vatican's panties are always in a bunch. I remember when Monty Python did "The Life of Bryan." The church banned it. All that did was boost the box office receipts. Every Catholic I knew made a point to go see it.
The writer likes to weave truth and fiction together.
But James, as per your statement about Rick "The Prick" Perry...
Remember, that Ricky only got 39.6% of the vote. That means 60.4% of the people of Texas didn't want him back.
Personally, I'm for KINKY!
At least the man can sing....
Besides, it's for the Governorship of Texas. The LT. Gov. has all the power. Been that way since after Reconstruction.

I saw it. Kind of disappointing, but I guess that was because my viewing of it followed on the heels of the astonishing movie, The God Who Was Not There, which almost had me fainting it was so anti-Christian. Yes, fainting. I still have a Christoholic's desire to drink the blood, translating to shock at anyone's attack on the faith I was brought up on. Somehow, I don't think viewing Angels and Demons would produce the same effect, though the New Yorker indicates it has the Vatican's panties in a bunch. Maher doesn't say much more than he does on his HBO show, which I canceled recently since I didn't like paying about $13 a month to watch that one show, nothing else on HBO catching my fancy lately.

Has anyone seen "Religulous"?
Comment by Vanessa on May 28, 2009 at 11:17am
I'm in Odessa...I'm actually right across the street from Permian High of Fri. Night Lights. Yes, this area is pretty pathetic and I think most people can't wait to get away. I've been trying my whole life and have made it a few times, but it's like a vacuum...the place sucks you back in. Unfortunately, there are few non-religious guys here either, so I had to marry one who doesn't care if I'm an atheist.
BTW, many religious girls here will do much more than their religion preaches......
