    The most important thing I learned in the Democratic District 5 SBOE debate:

    The SBOE’s health curriculum teaches teenagers that sexually transmitted diseases can be prevented by getting enough sleep.

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who would have thought it. We can prevent VD by simply buying Sleep Numbers Beds for our kids. Before we know it, Sleep Number Beds will soon supplant the need for condoms, penicillin, and all related pharmaceuticals. It was all so simple. The public health professionals missed it. The epidemiologists missed it. The local medical doctors missed it. The New England Journal Of Medicine and Lancet missed it. How could they have been so stupid. Some average Joe Christian Neo-Fundamentalist in Texas has made one of the great medical breakthroughs of the 21st century!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
