there is a god

(Well, maybe.)

Yesterday, Utah lawmakers refused to pass a state law that would have required teachers to tell students that evolution is not a fact and that the state doesn't endorse the theory.

The best quote from the story:
"I don't believe that anybody in there really wants their kids to be taught that their great-grandfather was an ape," Buttars said.

Perhaps the distinguished gentleman from Utah should sponsor a bill stating that grammar is a theory and that the state doesn't endorse it. After all, his own speech shows a flagrant disrepect for the (dare I say radical) notion that subjects and verbs should agree in number.
