Derek, I view those posts (the critical ones) as a lot like the 
Kansas school board.   Here is a letter I wrote to the editor of the KC Star:

It was with great interest I have read recently about the controversy 
over teaching of evolution and Darwin's conclusions in Kansas.  As a 
grandparent of four, I have been concerned about my grandkids ability 
to compete in an ever better-educated world.  Fortunately, many 
Kansans have rushed to my rescue and volunteered to make their kids 
more ignorant so mine will be more competitive.   I wish to thank 
them for their generosity in moving their kids aside so more senior 
jobs will be available for my grandchildren.  To those who oppose 
teaching evolution in Kansas, good luck and many thanks.
