It must be a slow day for the opinion writers at the Star Tribune today, since they headlined today's Op-Ex section with the Theory of Evolution vs. Intelligent Design Death Match. I mean, three pieces on the subject with two of them on the front page of the section. They can be found here, here, and here.
I don't want to disappoint the fellows who picked the theme, but I would guess the debate between supporters of evolution and supporters of the theory of intelligent design ranks well below the the top 10 issues of most importance to the average Minnesotan. Moreover, if this is just an attempt to alert the gullible Minnesota public to the Evil Plan TM of the NeoconRethuglicans to establish a theocracy, not to worry. The chances of the teaching of evolution being banned in our schools in favor of intelligent design is about the same as our Timberwolves winning this season's NBA championship.
