The Canton Rep is reporting that Bill Todd is suing the Columbus City Schools Board of Education “challenging whether students within each district being treated equally.”

His proof: half-assed, biased research from the highly-conservative Buckeye Institute.

Todd is quoted as saying ?This whole thing is about public schools, and about making sure they work as efficiently as possible.”

I have an idea for you Mr. Todd: maybe if dirtbag lawyers like you didn’t sue the school system they wouldn’t have to hire expensive lawyers to defend themselves and they’d be able to put some of that money back […]

The mother of all political stunts

An atheist State Sentator – in Nebraska – is suing God. Presented in it’s entirety, mostly because I can’t figure out what to cut out.
