In yet another glaring example of why some black robes ought to come equipped with the logo of a well-known retail chain, a tin-horned bench jockey has infringed upon the free-speech rights of a school board.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – In one of the biggest courtroom clashes between faith and evolution since the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, a federal judge barred a Pennsylvania public school district Tuesday from teaching “intelligent design” in biology class, saying the concept is creationism in disguise.

And who would know better about disguises than a black-robed tyrant pretending to be a fair-minded, knowledgeable-in-the-law judge, hm?

Denizens, for your Wednesday morning pick-me-up, we refer you to a little item referred to us – are you sitting down? – by none other than Widdle Mikey “Um Yeah” Suckliffe.

Seems that a Spanish Inquistion Civil Rights Commission in Ohio was a little upset that a barkeep put a sign in his window saying “For Service Speak English”.

There is no evidence that Jim Crow has ever warmed a bar stool or nursed a long neck at the Pleasure Inn tavern in Mason. But to hear the Ohio Civil Rights Commission tell it, Jim Crow is a two-fisted regular who stands in the door with an ax handle to run off anyone who can’t speak English.

The commissioners did everything but accuse owner Tom Ullum of being a certified racist because he put a sign in his bar window that said, “For Service Speak English.”

On second thought, they did that too. “It’s just as effective as a ‘whites only’ sign,” they said, invoking Rosa Parks as if she had been ordered to sit in the back of the bar.

Hmmmm.  Wonder if we should tell them about the official language of the aviation industry?
