What’s happening to Kentucky?


Kentucky is the home of the infamous Creation Museum, the famously ridiculous brainchild of Ken Ham that argues that the Earth is 6,000 years old and rejects any science that says otherwise. So one might be forgiven if one thinks of it as a religiously conservative state. But as I pointed out with my two earlier posts, the state Board of Education adopted a document outlining its new science standards that flatly goes counter to that image.

Now, in an excellent piece from Stephen Colbert, we see further expectation-defying behavior, this time from the small rural town of Vicco.
