The fight over Darwin rages on in Kansas

Creature reports that Darwin is staging a comeback in Kansas:
God and Charles Darwin are not on the primary ballot in Kansas on Tuesday, but once again a contentious schools election has religion and science at odds in a state that has restaged a three-quarter-century battle over the teaching of evolution.
Less than a year after a conservative Republican majority on the State Board of Education adopted rules for teaching science containing one of the broadest challenges in the nation to Darwin’s theory of evolution, moderate Republicans and Democrats are mounting a fierce counterattack. They want to retake power and switch the standards back to what they call conventional science.
Sniffing a conservative backlash, Creature muses, "Crazy can only hold on for so long." Let it be as you say, sir.
