The Weekend Desk Report

"Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday," AFP reports.

"The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

"Ten questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score - 6.5 correct - was barely a passing grade.

"Just 74 per cent of respondents knew that the Earth revolved around the Sun, according to the results released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago."

To be fair, the results were skewed by members of Chicago's city council, who answered that the Earth revolves around the mayor.

Pot Spots
"Marijuana sellers should be able to open a medical dispensary in the center of Chicago, state officials said in recently unveiled documents," the Sun-Times reports.

"Proposed rules by the state would allow up to 13 dispensaries to open all around the city to be sure patients throughout could easily fill their marijuana prescriptions."

That's great, but what are we going to do with the other 30 closed schools?
