Good Morning: You Won't Believe What Americans Believe

It will be another cold, wintry-feeling day today, with a high of about 38 degrees. Skipping ahead to Saturday (believe me, the weather between now and Saturday is worth skipping), there's a chance for snow. How much and if we'll really get it is something we won't know for another few days, but you know the new Washington, DC: If there's a chance for snow, we usually get that snow.

Some revealing insight into Americans: Forty percent of us believe in creationism, according to a Gallup poll that was released a few days ago. Here's the exact wording of the question, if you're curious: "God created humans pretty much in their present form at one time within the past 10,000 years or so." To which 40 percent responded, "agree." That number is down slightly from 1999, when 47 percent of Americans said that they believed in creationism.
