WE have more news from that enchanted region we’ve been calling The Florida Ark. The what? According to the Curmudgeon’s Glossary:

In the Ledger, a newspaper in Lakeland, Florida — midway between Tampa and Orlando, we read Terry Pittman Concerned About Polk’s High Dropout Rate. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
[We’d like to give you some excerpts from the news story, but that paper is being acquired by Stephens Media, and they’re suing bloggers who excerpt their content without permission. So you’ll have to click over there to read it for yourself.]
Yea! There it is — hard-core! Go, Pittman! Here’s the genius’ campaign website: Terry Pittman for School Board District 6.
This is the end of the article:
“The teaching of creationism has as much of a place as evolution,” Pittman said. “When it comes to policy-making decisions, everyone should be taken into consideration.”
Thank you, Terry Pittman! You’ve made our day.
Only one question remains: What is the greatest danger to the people of the Florida Ark? Is it the toxic waste from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, or is it the toxic waste in their creationist brains?
