Tex Books Redux

Next week, the Texas Board of Education—whose membership apparently consists exclusively of anti-Muslim bigots already possessed of a Texas-style education—will vote on a resolution that effectively rewrites a large chunk of American religious history. The problem is that Tex Books find their way into educational systems all across the country, so that if when the resolution passes, students living far beyond Texas’ borders get to share in the ignorance and stupidity of it all—whether they want to or not.

Gee, while the bigots on the Texas Board of Education are voting on the resolution, couldn’t the non-bigots among us get together and vote Texas off the island, or something?
