A Heavy Helping of Irony
If you suffer from an irony deficient diet, you might want to take a look at Tony Ortega's Kansas City Strip column in The Pitch. Tony sez:
"The utter defeat was not lost on Celtie Johnson, a God-fearing Johnson County mom who was largely responsible for the last battle over evolution in Kansas schools. Back in 1999, she led an honest fight for biblical truth, attempting to get the Genesis creation story taught to schoolchildren. She's back again, fighting evolution once more, but this time she's standing up for the watered-down ID agenda. "
Ortega also observes that,
"So far, the local media have done a pathetic job of explaining the ideas behind "ID," giving us no real clue what's actually at stake in the effort to change science teaching standards. "
Unfortunately, it's hard to argue with that.
