Lisa is Going to Have to Relocate

Her boss is not really making it much of an option and I sort of think that he is doing it because he is afraid of her. Of course when you are the king you always have to look around and make sure that no one is about to whack you in the dome and take the crown. A couple of months ago the big boss man hit town and Lisa seems to have impressed him. At any rate right now we are looking at apartments for rent in Grand Prairie TX, which is where we are going to be moving too. I was surprised at how easy it was for me to find a new teaching job, although I really wonder if you can teach in Texas without interference from polticians. As a science teacher you have to think about politics very little in most places, but in states like Texas you have a fundamentalist takeover of the state educational system.

In fact it reminds me somewhat of this ridiculous thing called the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which was invented in response to the Kansas educational system wanting to teach evolution. Basically some guy took all of their arguments and repeated them, but in place of the Judaeo Christian God he replaced this Flying Spaghetti monster and argued that worshipping it was exactly as valid. Of course it was nonsense and that was the whole point. When you teach science you want to stay as far away from religion as you can, but that is not what a lot of religious people want to do obviously. In Texas they have done a lot of really unusual things to way that you teach science in this state. I am not going to worry too much about that though.
