I come back to PA and this is what I find.

I got back from a meeting in California a couple of days ago, and I'm still trying to deal with the new time zone and the daylight savings time change. Upon checking some websites, I discovered the following legislation is proposed for PA:
Section 1. The act of act of March 10, 1949 (P.L.30, No.14), known as the Public School Code of 1949, is amended by adding a section to read:

Section 1516.2. Teaching Theories on the Origin of Man and Earth.--(a) In any public school instruction concerning the theories of the origin of man and the earth which includes the theory commonly known as evolution, a board of school directors may include, as a portion of such instruction, the theory of intelligent design. Upon approval of the board of school directors, any teacher may use supporting evidence deemed necessary for instruction on the theory of intelligent design.

Hopefully we can mobilize our department and prevent the stupification of PA.
