    Just pointing out that the diarist that wrote Texas State Board of Education and the Debate Debate is the Democratic candidate in District 5, Rebecca Bell Metereau.

    I know it's not as sexay as the Delaware Senate race, but the Texas State BoE contests are very important - and not just because they will determine the quality of education in the Lone Star State. Because Texas is such a large market, it has a disproportionate impact on the content of textbooks sold elsewhere in the US.

    If you care about preventing reactionary loons from redacting Thomas Jefferson from American History texts or including creation "science" in biology or abstinence-only sex ed - in Texas and the rest of the country - you should care about these races.

    I come by my cynicism naturally - drop by drop over a lifetime of disappointment.
