The National Association of State Boards of Education will elect officers in July, and for one office, president-elect, there is only one candidate: a member of the Kansas school board who supported its efforts against the teaching of evolution.
The candidate is Kenneth R. Willard, a Kansas Republican who voted with the conservative majority in 2005 when the school board changed the stateâ€™s science standards to allow inclusion of intelligent design, an ideological cousin of creationism.

It’s unclear what this will mean for Pastafarians. My guess is that it will help our cause if Mr. Willard is elected.
