So what happens when your best friend lies? It would pretty much ruin my world. But it doesn't seem to bother W and his cohorts.
It's now clear the Georgie's best friendTony lied to help him out in the elections, raising the fear of terrorist attack to scare radical right-wingers to the republican polls. The "thwarted attacks" that Blair claimed actually never happened. And have you noticed that all the threats of terror before the election have now vanished? Gee, wondered how that happened. I'm sure the "security moms," now feel safer. The rest of us (being lied to) don't feel safe at all.

Yup, it's true. The Gransburg, Wisconsin school district is trying to teach creationism as part of a science curriculum. And in Georgia the "reds" have gone even further by pushing to put stickers in school books declaring that evolution is a "theory," thereby discounting it as science and elevating their view of creationism to the same level as fact-based science. Keep an eye on your school board. I know I want my child to be taught facts, not tales of fantasy.
