Gunman fires upon local school board in Florida -- but apparently it wasn't about evolution in the state science standards
The gunman, Clay A. Duke, opened fire on Husfelt [the local superintendent of schools] at a school board meeting Tuesday night in Panama City, but nobody was hit. A security officer, Mike Jones, exchanged fire with Duke, wounding him. Duke, a 56-year-old ex-convict, then fatally shot himself with a 9-mm handgun and was the only casualty of the violence caught on videotape.
. . . . . . . Police wouldn't comment on a motive, but reports said Duke was angry because, he said, the school district had fired his wife.
My first thought was that the gunman was upset about the Florida state science standards' statement that "evolution is the fundamental concept underlying all of biology." Darn -- no such luck.
