I Think We're in Kansas Again, Toto

The balance of power has shifted again in Kansas, as Jack Krebs reported earlier here that it might. Kathy Martin, a conservative advocate of teaching creationism in science classes, defeated Bruce Wyatt, a moderate proponent of teaching science in science classes, shifting the board from a 5-5 split to a simple 6-4 conservative majority. Expect revisions to the state science standards in 2005 to "de-emphasize" evolution again. Whether the board will go so far as to insert "creationism" brazenly by name remains to be seen.
