    Brilliant!

    Look for Texas to come up with the idea that Several Muslim countries have. The Moral Police.

    The Texas SBOE most certainly did not get rid of Thomas Jefferson. Please, don't report based on sound bites from tertiary sources. Go to the Texas SBOE webpage and read for yourself. Jefferson's name was simply removed from a list of "enlightenment philosophers." Big difference. Now, I have some concerns about some things the SBOE has proposed–and I'm very supportive of other things. But the discussion can only proceed on the basis of sound reporting of fact.
