A Dish Served Cold

Via Pharyngula and UTI comes news that the now-laudable Dover School Board has opened the jobs of Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent for the district school system. Richard Nilsen and Michael Baksa were instrumental in the implementation of the district's Intelligent Design program, which the Dover School district suffered until Judge Jones smacked them and board members senseless last fall. Jones' decision, while enjoyable, actually post-dated November elections, whereby ID advocates on the board were immediately dispatched by aggrevated voters. Now those new board members have chosen to further dispatch Nilsen and Baksa.

As evidence of his enforced yet happy cluelessness, Nilsen actually claimed to have "no idea" why his contract was not being renewed. It is strongly suspected that Mr. Nilsen has no idea about a lot of things, not the least of which would be deductive reasoning. Which is probably why science didn't much appeal to the man.

People now seem to put more thought into who the school superintendant than who is the President.
It is a start I guess.

If they had been doing this, we probably wouldn't have the president we have right now.

Get your facts straight. The Superintendent works "at the pleasure of the school board". Nilsen advised the school board not to enact Intelligent Design as did the lawyer for the school district. Despite this, the board passed the ID policy. Since the board is the boss of the school administrators, Nilsen was compelled to implement the policy.
