You are going to base your dislike of the state of Kansas around a book that I am sure you haven't read, and was written by a hardcore liberal?

I have met Thomas Frank and have read his book, and I can tell you that Frank spent the majority of his life in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area and has very little understanding of life in rural Western Kansas (actually, life anywhere west of Topeka).

Kansas is far from one of the most fundamentalist Christian states in America, and that should be evident from recent elections of Democratic Governor Kathleen Sebelius and Attorney General Paul Morrison, who defeated the highly conservative, Bill O'Reilly-backed Phil Kline in November.

Don't let the 1999 decision by the Kansas Board of Education to eliminate the theory of evoulation from the classroom fool you, as that decision is far from indicative of the people in the state.
