You’ll Eat Wonder Bread and You’ll Like It!

The folks at Missouri’s Show-Me Institute have an interesting take on the controversy surrounding evolution, the state board of education, and schools.

Here’s an excerpt that does a good job of looking at it all from a different point of view:

“Imagine you live in a town where you are required to pay several thousand dollars of taxes each year into a public fund that is used to buy food for the entire community. There is a publicly elected “Menu Board” that determines each year’s offerings. You wanted rye this year? Sorry! The Board voted for Wonder Bread. Again! You could, in principle, opt out of the public food system and buy rye, pumpernickel, or seven grain oat-nut crunch at a fancy private store. But you’ve already paid thousands in taxes, and can’t afford to pay twice for everything you eat. The Menu Board picks it. You eat it.”
