Kansas crawls back into the primordial soup. http://www.nature.com/news/2005/051107/full/051107-6.html It seems that evolution has taken a step back in kansas and allowed for monkeys to be members of the schoolboard. These monkeys couldn't tell the difference between a banana and a fart and voted Intelligent design back into the class room. A victory for the students apparently. Well, maybe if they are a species of primordial slime and not rather intelligent hominids. If I want to describe this with a word I would pick 'sad'. How could this happen in an enlighted society. Can we draw the conclusion that we are living in the dark ages? And that we may need a new renaissance.
