Georgia School Board Bans ‘Theory Of Math’

COGDELL, GA—The Cogdell School Board banned the teaching of the controversial “Theory Of Math” in its schools Monday. “We are simply not confident of this mysterious process by which numbers turn, as if by magic, into other numbers,” board member Gus Reese said. “Those mathematicians are free to believe 3 times 4 equals 12, but that dun [sic] give them the right to force it on our children.” Under the new ruling, all math textbooks will carry a disclaimer noting that math is only one of many valid theories of number-manipulation.

Well, actually says Ari Fleischer, but presumably GWB feels pretty much the same way.

Hey, I’m not a gun guy. I don’t get the fascination. But I find it hard to believe that anyone’s rights are significantly infringed by having to register their thunder-sticks.
