Wat.

Wait, didn't I hear something similar about how the Vatican finally admitted that Galileo was right....in 1992?

Well, I guess better late than never.

It looks like it was actually ratified in 1995 -- just the proper paperwork was never filed to make it "official".  I have to wonder who the Mississippi Secretary of State was at that time as it would be interesting to see his/her reason for not doing so: the politics of prejudice, simple mistake, or something else.
