Competing rallies from left-leaning and right-leaning groups, JFK assassination conspirators, signs with messages like "It's still legal to love America"... just a typical day over at the State Board of Education. It's meeting this week and the stakes are high - the board is set to take its final vote on history standards by the end of the week, and the lenses of cameras from across the state and nation are zoomed in on Texas. Our coverage has been extensive - check out my colleague Brian Thevenot's preview and consideration of the politics at play, and I've linked some other coverage in the right-hand column.

Meanwhile, we brought our HuTube camera to the circus surrounding the meeting today (and stopped inside for a few exchanges) in case you missed the action.
