Election Round Up
Every Arnold initiative goes down. Shame about redistricting.
Both gubernatorial races went to the Democrats. Kaine seems like a good guy, even if he's got the archetypal name of a gothic fantasy villain. Corzine on the other hand....
The anti-science school board in Dover, PA gets shit-canned. The school board of Kansas, on the other hand, votes narrowly to incorporate ID into biology curricula and removes the notion of "a search for natural explanations of observable phenomena" from their operative definition of science. So there you have it: in Kansas, "science," doesn't refer to science, but, um, something else. Our not un-Catholic pal Francisco Ayala says the move is "an insult to science, an insult to education and an insult to the American Constitution."
Othere referendum results are mixed.
And Shalek beats Livengood. No need to gloat, but being on the winning side in an election is a welcome, if unfamiliar feeling.
