From last night's PBS Newshour, which I liked a LOT better when it was still "The Newshour with Jim Lehrer" and better still when it was "The MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour." But let's not pick nits.
The most interesting thing about the piece above and the poll itself (full article here)? Atheists/agnostics scored highest, followed by Jews and Mormons; atheists/agnostics supposedly make up only four percent of the American population. You can take an abbreviated version of the poll here. It's a 15 question quiz as opposed to the 32 questions asked in the "official" poll. My results:
I missed the question about the Jewish Sabbath and the question about the significance of the wafer and wine in the Catholic Communion ritual. I'm also one of those self-identified agnostics, even though I AM a Buddhist by an official act of the United States Gub'mint. For the record, my definition of agnostic: I acknowledge the existence of a supreme being; I just don't know what his/her name is. I'm fond of saying I HOPE it's something like Phoebe, Aphrodite, or Diana.
And now back to Red Eye.
