Good reading about goings-on in Kansas

There was lots of news coverage in early May about the Kansas hearings around state science education standards. Among the best was a substantive article by Stan Cox posted on Alternet on May 19. In "Monkey Trial or Kangaroo Court?" Cox reviews the case and provides an "in their own words" summary of some of the testimony.

Attorney Pedro Irigonegaray, who argued the case for the proposed science standards that were being challenged by conservative religious members on the Kansas Board of Education, is the subject of a May 31 article by Mary Sanchez in the Miami Herald on religious freedom.
