Fellow Ann Arbor blogger Cyndy has a post about a Salon article on American ignorance. Here's a quote:

Of those surveyed, only 17 percent knew the correct answer: that none of the hijackers were Iraqi. Forty-four percent of Americans believe that most or some of the hijackers were Iraqi; another 6 percent believe that one of the hijackers was a citizen of that most notorious node in the axis of evil. That leaves 33 percent who did not know enough to offer an answer.

Ignorance is very dangerous.
