I am addicted to the NYT because of articles like this.

Key quotes:

"President Bush is also the only Western leader I know of who doesn’t believe in evolution, saying 'the jury is still out.'"

"Only one American in 10 understands radiation, and only one in three has an idea of what DNA does. One in five does know that the Sun orbits the Earth ...oh, oops."

"How can we decide on embryonic stem cells if we don’t understand biology? How can we judge whether to invade Iraq if we don’t know a Sunni from a Shiite?"
