We have our job cut out for us."

--Joe Madeira, director of exhibitions at the soon-to-open McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum in Chicago, on a poll that found only one in four Americans could name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment (freedom of speech), but more than half could name at least two members of Simpsons' cartoon family. The other freedoms are: freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly and freedom to petition for redress of grievances. (The Simpsons are: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie.)
