The Edge of Kansas

The following appears in The Edge, a small tabloid paper serving Ellis County, Kansas:

A very large percentage of our population believes in psychics, which is a load of disproved nonsense, and our TV shows cater to these ignoramuses with Psychic Detectives and Psychic Animal trainers.

Another large percentage of people believe in ghosts, and a ton of TV shows cater to their ignorance. Even the Discovery channel and travel channel features haunted houses, and the like.

Then we have a regression in religion with fundamentalists reverting to 12th century thinking; fools who do not believe in evolution, but do believe in Intelligent Design and some who believe the universe to be only 6,000 years old. Even some presidential candidates are this ignorant.
Huh. Who would've thought Kansas could be this edgy?
