September 7, 1999


To the editor,

Friends and family from out of state have asked me what in the world is going on here in Kansas. I tell them I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Thank you for running the Baltimore Sun article with excerpts from H. L. Mencken's coverage of the Scopes trial. His words are as fitting today as they were in 1925. The letters and e-mails published Sunday were informed, articulate and to the point as well. There's nothing further I can add about the fundamentalist majority on the State Board of Education. Besides, I'm not sure of the plural of "ignoramus."

Christy Kennedy,
