Creation Museum created (but it took longer than six days)

Four thousand people showed up on Memorial Day for the opening of the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., 20 miles southwest of Cincinnati.

I wasn’t there (I wish I was!), but the Cincinnati Enquirer has covered the museum’s opening in-depth.

Read it all — who built it and why — right “here.”:

Gary Stern

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
