This story (linked by the headline) appears in today's Chicago Tribune Travel Section. It's about one of Arkansas' newest tourist attractions, the Museum of earth History, in lovely Eureka Springs.
Believe it or not, nearly half of the general public believes the literal Genesis story of creation. That means that Arkansans are not made out to be any dumber than visiting Yanks.
This is a serious issue and I guess I am going to have to write a column about it soon. It is enough, for today, to say that we got here because we evolved, and the powerful forces behind the movement to sneak other theories into public school science classes know that there is another agenda behind what they do.
