Study: Few Americans Know 1st Amendment - Yahoo! News

Study: Few Americans Know 1st Amendment - Yahoo! News:
CHICAGO - Americans apparently know more about 'The Simpsons' than they do about the First Amendment.

Only one in four Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment (freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition for redress of grievances.) But more than half can name at least two members of the cartoon family, according to a survey.
Hence, the problem. I bet even fewer people know the Fourth Amendment. If we don't know our freedoms, how can we expect to keep them?
