at last, some sanity.

Kudos to the Georgia Board of Education and the Gwinnett County School Board for refusing to dignify fourteenth-century superstitions with official action.

The sad part is that Ms. Mallory "has worked for more than a year" to try and ban reading material not only for her kids, but for every kid in the Gwinnett County school system. How in the frak do you have three kids and time to mount (and publicize) an anti-witchcraft campaign? It reminds me of the South Park episode where the parents all gang up on the network to get the potty-humor show Terrence and Philip banned "for the children", while the kids are being neglected because the parents are out demonstrating and picketing instead of tending to their offspring.

It boggles the mind. I know I've said this before, but it bears repeating: we've harnessed the power of the atom, sent men to the moon, and extended the human lifespan threefold in a hundred and fifty years with the powers of reason and logic, and there are people among us who still believe in the existence of witchcraft.
