THIS MAY BE the end of the road for Kathy, the queen of the Kansas creationists. It’s been a long road — littered with potholes, craters, and other impassible obstacles — all of them caused by Kathy herself.
She’s being challenged by a sane Republican for her seat on the Kansas Board of Education. We are reminded by the Abilene Reflector-Chronicle in this article: Primary voters to choose finalists, that Tuesday is election day for the primaries.
We’re already provided information about Kathy’s chaotic effect on Kansas, most recently here: Bleeding Kansas: Pawn in the War for the Enlightenment.
It’s entertaining to be an observer of the absurd, and at that level it would be a pity to lose Kathy. But at a more realistic level — preserving Western Civilization — people like her should be kept out of decision-making positions.
All that remains now is to see whether Kathy or her more rational opponent prevails in tomorrow’s primary. If Kathy wins, we’ll have many more articles to write about madness in Kansas. Her loss will signal a continuation of the recent phase of sanity in that state’s science education.
But don’t worry about your Curmudgeon’s blogging career. Louisiana alone will be enough to keep us busy.
