Sound familiar?

Well, folks, it's happening againanother education-related evolution lawsuit. This time, a 15-year-old student is suing her local education committee because her 10th-grade biology textbook teaches evolution in a way she finds religiously offensive.

This lawsuit, however, is not happening here in America. It's happening in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Her school principal's reaction? He thinks she has no serious religious beliefs. "It seems to everyone that this is stupid and serves no purpose," he said in televised comments. "Pupils and teachers are more amused than concerned about it."

If that's true, and the lawsuit has nothing to do with her religion, then I can't help but wonder if she got the idea from media coverage of our country's infamous Dover trial.
