[b]A similar controversy has erupted in Kansas, where the state Board of Education on Tuesday approved science standards for public schools that cast doubt on the theory of evolution. The 6-4 vote was a victory for intelligent design advocates who helped draft the standards.

Originally posted by wibI predict the same backlash in Kansas. It happened back in what '99? Again, voters falling asleep at the wheel. Then they hear the plastic warning strip. Thump, thump, thump, thump. They wake up and pull the car back from the brink of destruction.

I'm going to write to my Congressman and insist that he draft legislation causing any state that mandates the teaching of intelligent design to be automatically and involutarily seceded.
