On to Ohio

At The Thumb, Richard Hoppe reminds us that there are still creationists on Ohio's Board of Ed to be ousted. Fortunately, a group called Help Ohio Public Education – HOPE – has organized to help find candidates. He also urges people to write to the Akron Beacon Journal (email link).

Kansans who've seen the problems that come with a creationist Board should share their insights with our friends in the Buckeye State. Even if you don't live in Ohio, you may have a connection to the area, and you should mention that in your letters. Don't be afraid to rework letters you sent to your local papers outside of Ohio.

The local creationist is Deborah Owens Fink, one of two people who've been pushing the Board toward creationism. Hoppe describes Fink as "Ohio's answer to Connie Morris."

Update: Added HOPE's website.
