1st Amendment rights? Who cares? The Simpsons are on!

A new survey, taken by the new McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum, found that 22 percent of Americans could name all five Simpson family members, compared with just one in 1,000 people who could name all five First Amendment freedoms. (Those five are freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition for redress of grievances.) Also, more people could name the three “American Idol” judges than identify three First Amendment rights. I guess that they won't miss those freedoms as Bush whittles them away bit by bit. "D'oh!" indeed.
