Depressing News

In the same way that news on the economy is both depressing but not surprising, the California Academy of Sciences has found that American's knowledge of basic science facts (such as how long it takes the Earth to orbit the sun) is appallingly low. I find no comfort in the fact that it is valued as being important. That is simply empty talk less enlightning than a late night interview of some new starlet.
