The money graph:
“The study 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.”
I’ll admit I might be stumped on naming all five freedoms. Some seem to blend in with each other — speech and press, for instance. And assembly and redress of grievances — I might have stumbled on those.
The Simpsons, on the other hand (I do solemnly swear I didn’t cheat): Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie.
