When American Exceptionalism is embarrassing

Just watched a documentary I recorded from PBS's Independent Lens. Follows the Texas School Board in its process of adapting science and history textbooks. I've never seen a greater public display of ignorance in my life. People who read the Bible literally, who think the Earth is only 6000 years old, are deciding which SCIENCE textbooks school kids will study in public schools. Appalling. Makes me sick in my stomach. These poor kids. This is an embarrassment to the world. Exceptionalism indeed.
