Sunday's Cartoon (8/21/05) portraying a cognitively and behaviorally challenged student -- and then satirically claiming that this will all be fixed by teaching him intelligent design -- was a new low for the genre. Besides offending a class of disabled human beings, it betrays a complete ignorance of the fact that indoctrinating our students with evolutionary propaganda has produced a generation who do not understand the scientific method and think progress is made by coming up with imaginative scenarios rather than logical treatment of the evidence.
