I am a federalist. You have to understand that before reading further. I believe in federalism, which the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines as "a system of government in which power is divided between a central authority and constituent political units." In the United States, the "central authority" is the federal government. The "constituent political units" are the states. Our Constitution clearly limits the power of the former and grants all matters not in its purview to the latter.

If a middle-school science teacher wanted to introduce the subject of global warming to students, she could do worse than to show the Al Gore documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. Unless, that is, she lived in the Seattle suburb Federal Way, where some parents recently objected to having their children see it. One father agreed that the planet is warming, but said it is caused by God, not man, and is a sign that Judgment Day is approaching. The school board knuckled under to the pressure, initially banning the movie and then requiring that teachers planning to show it first get written approval from their principals.

She returned to the water in February and competed for the first time yesterday. She responded with a second-place finish in the 200-meter breaststroke."Everyone thinks I'm so upset because I didn't win, but I'm happy to get second," said Nall, a senior at Towson Catholic.
