According to the news, the guy who killed himself after attempting to set the Ministry of Education alight was a) mentally unhinged and b) had been upset about the ministry’s decision—at the behest of creationists—to allow publishers to delete references to archaeopteryx in school textbooks.

Police are investigating if his complaints formed his motive for setting the blaze.

The government, incidentally, overruled the ministry’s decision and instructed publishers to keep reference to the archaeopteryx in. Archaeopteryx fans, take heart.

BTW, the Korean word for archaeopteryx is 시조새.
