Thank God We're Not in Kansas, Toto

That great sucking sound you hear is the college prospects of Kansas students going down the drain, as the Kansas State Board of Education approves the teaching of "intelligent design" in science classes.

As bad as the California education system has become, our problem here is that we just don't teach well, it's not, as it apparently now is in Kansas, that our teachers just get to make shit up to explain things that are too complex for their tiny little brains. Among other things, "the board rewrote the definition of science, so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena." Isn't that special?

Update: On a more positive note, all eight members of the Dover School Board who had approved the teaching of ID there were swept out of office by voters yesterday.
