Kaine yanks abstinence funding

Governor Tim Kaine cut $275,000 from a matching grant for a federal program that funded abstinence-only sex-ed teaching, according to a story in yesterday's Washington Post. Kaine cited studies that showed the programs didn't work. The issue has been a live one in Charlottesville since last year when controversy erupted over funding and again in April of this year when abstinence supporters held an info session.

It's so nice to have a governor who actually thinks.
