Darwin exhibit extended

Huge crowds extend Darwin exhibit in New York:
A monumental Charles Darwin exhibition in New York has been extended by five months amid an overwhelming public response to what was touted as a scholarly rebuke to opponents of teaching evolution in US schools.

The American Museum of Natural History said Wednesday that nearly 200,000 people had visited "Darwin" since it opened three months ago.
And more will now get the chance. That "three months" is wrong, since I visited it last November, and stood on a long line to do so.

There's a hunger for good, accurate information, and exhibit's like Darwin, or the KU Natural History Museum's Evolution exhibit all help people understand their world a little better.
