September 7, 1999


To the editor:

Enough already! On July 28, the Lawrence Journal-World printed a survey by The Children's Rights Council ranking the best states in which to raise a child.

The first five states were the New England states. North Dakota was number six, Maryland number seven and Kansas number eight. Then came the evolution flap. School districts were given the option to teach evolution or not.

The news media and television commentators were quick to criticize Kansas for this decision. It is interesting to note that the people who criticized the most were from New York, ranked 34th. The folks from Texas, ranked 48th, had their say. Of course, we received the most information from our nation's capital, Washington D.C., ranked 51st.

Let's not get too uptight about this. Kansas, all in all, is a wonderful place to live.

G.C. Dunfield,
