I'm from Missouri

This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me." This site is dedicated to skepticism of official dogma in all subjects. Just-so stories are not accepted here. This is a site where controversial subjects such as evolution theory and the Holocaust may be freely debated.

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Gunman fires upon local school board in Florida -- but apparently it wasn't about evolution in the state science standards

A news article said,

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.

The statement, "evolution is the fundamental concept underlying all of biology" is a "new low," bozo.

And you compare this to attempted murder? And you call me bozo? You're either an insane or cruel little boy. Possibly both.

There is nothing wrong with the comparison -- one is a very low action and the other is a very low statement.

Whatever helps you sleep at night. I'm going to add 'juvenile' to the two possibilities.
