The unforgiving minute

And if students wore Nike shirts, would this improperly associate the school with controversial theories like gravity?

T-shirts worn by members of the Smith-Cotton High School band have been recalled by the school district because they contained images of evolution. The t-shirts featured an image of a monkey holding a brass instrument and progressing through various stages of evolution until eventually becoming a human. “I was disappointed with the image on the shirt,” said Sherry Melby, a band parent who teaches in the district. “I don’t think evolution should be associated with our school.”

I think we can put your fears to rest on that one, Ms. Melby.

Minute's up.
