We don't need no stinkin facts

JD Johannes over at Outside The Wire blog has All Analysis, No Facts
  • "The average college senior knows astoundingly little about America's history, government, international relations and market economy, earning an "F" on the American civic literacy exam with a score of 54.2%. Harvard seniors did best, but their overall average was 69.6%, a disappointing D+." Is the verdict from Intercollegiate Studies Institute after grading the results of this test.

Johannes brings up some great points in his review of this and points out that this explains a lot about the current debate on Iraq. It's a good, short read.
