Here's what one Lloydletta reader sent them:
Dear Board of Education members:
I'm a writer, but I cannot even find the words to describe what complete jackasses you people are making of your entire state. To think that a Board of Education in the year 2005 is debating the validity of evolution and whether Bible fantasies should be substituted for scientific fact in school classrooms is simply mind-boggling.
If I ever am in the position of hiring people, I can assure you that an applicant's resume indicating "educated in Kansas" would guarantee rejection. Period. Because I wouldn't want to have to embarrass an applicant by asking him or her whether they believed the earth was round or flat.
