in which parents try to close their children's minds, canadian edition

I haven't been blogging about the epic battle between Knowledge and Ignorance currently being waged in Alberta. (It was mentioned in comments in this post about schools still fearing Harvey Milk.)

Never having lived in or yet visited the province, anything I could write would be merely the obvious. But be assured I've been reading about this madness, and mentally holding my breath.

I recommend this post from the four strong winds blog:

In the battle over evolution in the classrooms, Alberta's Minister Lindsay Blackett claims to represent the silent majority (whatever that is).
