Kansas evolution standards to evolve slowly towards science

For many of us the needed "spring cleaning" of the mess left by the Religious Right-dominated state Board of Education can't come too soon.

Apparently, though, the anti-evolution, intelligent design-festooned science standards won't be overhauled immediately. The new pro-science majority takes over the board in January.

The cause of the delay isn't sinister, AP reports. It's the wish to "do it right," says Steve Case, associate director of The University of Kansas' Center for Science Education.

That sounds OK to me as long as the changes come as soon as possible.
