"The press loves to bury us in public opinion polls, but something about these pie charts tastes funny to me." Daniel Price of AbusedByTheNews.com has published an interesting report on the state of statistics and polling methodology. Trust me, four out of five irate cows would rate this story as worth reading.

In related news, the National Council on Public Polls has put together 20 Questions A Journalist Should Ask About Poll Results - I think the general public should be asking these questions, since most journalists seem to have forgotten their job nowadays.
