Or so the American people believe, according to Gallup. Okay, so we are not quite up to the level of cops or dentists, but we’re way above journalists (sorry, guys), bankers, lawyers, and such riffraff as car salesmen, HMO managers, and members of Congress.

Could it be that the public is a little more familiar with pastors than profs? Perish the thought. Nanny nanny boo boo!
