Smith Center: East Meets West

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation movement, recently broke ground on $14 million complex to be called the World Capital of Peace in Smith Center, Kansas.

The World Capital of Peace will be situated on 480 acres of land in north-central Kansas, near the Nebraska border, and close to the geographical center of the continental United States.

One rumor circulating in Smith Center, a town of about 1,800 is that the Maharishi's followers are a cult, and they are going to make underground bunkers and build nuclear weapons.

RSR doesn't see much danger of that.

However, we are curious about which brand of intelligent design might be taught in the local schools after the Maharishi's followers arrive. That's assuming, of course, that the current right-wing state school board majority survives the next election, and the new standards actually go into effect.
