Are you aware of your first amendment freedoms?

From the ResourceShelf's DocuTicker:

Americans’ Awareness of First Amendment Freedoms (PDF; 232 KB)
From press release: "A new McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum survey finds that only about one in four Americans (28 percent) are able to name more than one of the five fundamental freedoms granted to them by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Yet when it comes to knowledge of popular culture, Americans are considerably more tuned in. For example, almost twice as many Americans (52 percent) can name at least two members of 'The Simpsons' cartoon family."
