    This fall, the Park Service approved a creationist text, "Grand Canyon: A Different View," for sale in park bookstores and museums. The book claims that the Grand Canyon is only a few thousand years old and developed on a biblical, rather than an evolutionary, time scale. At the same time, Park Service leadership has blocked publication of guidance for park rangers and other interpretative staff that labeled creationism as lacking any scientific basis, PEER found.

    The actions would appear to be in conflict with President Bush's stated support for policies based on "sound science."

    Last month, the Park Service announced it would alter an 8-minute video shown at the Lincoln Memorial visitor center of past demonstrations and events at the memorial. Conservative groups had asked for the removal of footage of gay rights, pro-choice and anti-Vietnam War demonstrations because it implies that "Lincoln would have supported homosexual and abortion 'rights' as well as feminism." The Park Service has promised to develop a "more balanced" version that includes rallies of Christian groups and pro-war demonstrations, PEER said.

    In the immortal words of Strong Bad, I thought I knew what ridiculous was, until this day.

    Remember: Pro-war is more balanced than anti-war.
