Good news

Election reuslts looked good. we neglected to vote absentee, which I am upset about. Will not happen again. But aside from Ah-nold being beaten back, this very local election is what I was happiest about. nothing makes my blood boil more than this "inteligent design" crap.

DOVER, Pa., Nov. 9 - In the end, voters here said they were tired of being portrayed as a northern version of Dayton, Tenn., a Bible Belt hamlet where 80 years ago a biology teacher named John Scopes was tried for illegally teaching evolution.

In swept the full Dover Cares slate of eight candidates, which had coalesced to oppose the change in the science curriculum.
