Meanwhile, Next Door in Tennessee


What's happening in Tennessee right now makes me flash on what the same Tennessee House of Representatives did in 1925. It passed the Butler Act, a bill “prohibiting the teaching of the Evolution Theory in all the Universities, Normals and all other public schools in Tennessee, which are supported in whole or in part by the public school funds of the State, and to provide penalties for the violations thereof.” The text stated that it would be illegal “to teach any theory that denies the story of the Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals.”

That worked out okay, right? (Well, maybe earned them the moniker of "the Stoopid State.")

Follow The Tennessee Holler (motto: "Always Yell the Truth"), "an audience-supported progressive news site with a series of active social media feeds that seek to amplify voices throughout Tennessee and YELL THE TRUTH about what’s really happening in our state." Their main website: I follow their very active Twitter feed: @TheTNHoller and their satellite operation, Tri-Cities Holler on Twitter.

We have nothing like this org in North Carolina, and we sorely need it, since we're moving into the Era of Cotham and the complete rule of The Stoopid Party.
