Students smarter than legislators in South Dakota

Good God. In the last two years legislators in 19 states have passed or are considering laws requiring schools to prominently display the U.S. motto 'In God We Trust' to entering students. South Dakota is the latest, mandating the offensive typeface be at least a foot tall and be placed where no student can avoid it. Why offensive? It's a clear violation of the separation of church and state. Such sentiments have no place in the halls of higher learning...and I don't mean as high as a make-believe heaven. Some students in Rapid City pushed back, telling the school board to consider alternatives to God such as Buddha, Allah, Science or Ourselves. The first two are a joke; the latter two truth. Welcome to South Dakota...where the smart ones attend school and the dummies attend the legislature.
