Dear Netter Friends,

I held off on posting this until I felt confident it would really happen.
The Ohio Board of Education will be meeting here on Monday, March 11, 2002
for the public meeting regarding the Ohio Science Curriculum revisions.
This is going to be an event-the national media will be covering it (to what
extent I am uncertain), we will have stepped up security, etc.  We will
probably have quite a crowd here (people are throwing numbers around in the
hundreds), and it is expected to get contentious.  This is about the
recently discussed "Evolution/Intelligent Design/Creationism"  issue we all
saw posted a few weeks ago, have seen discussed in news editorials etc.

Since the meeting will be held in the school auditorium. just down the hall
from the Media Center,  (!) Yours truly will literally have a front row seat
in watching history being made.  This is really something for us, as the
School Board usually meets over at our sister school, the Ohio School for
the Deaf.  Fellow LM netter Ada Kent is the Media Specialist there <smile>.

Please send good thoughts and wishes our way for a calm and orderly meeting.
Frankly, I'm a little nervous about it.  This is expected to be a real "show
We are going to broadcast the meeting via closed circuit inside the school,
and I will have my TV hooked up.  We are also taping the meeting.  If
something earth-shattering occurs, I'll post to the group, but I'll probably
hold off writing until the meeting ends.  This is expected to be wrapped up
by noon-we'll see how things pan out.
