sometimes the by-line is the real story

From Lawrence KS, news of a celebration of Darwin's 200th birthday.

When the right idea comes along, all those investments in the wrong ideas become liabilities. Ultimately the motivations for denial will be found in fear of new authority. That might be because of your experience with old authority. Trust me Kansans, its not about authority.

You always lose a war that only you imagine is being waged, no matter how many lynchings you count as battles won.
