44 percent of those viewers who responded to the poll picked Stewart as the most trusted newsman. Brian Williams of NBC News came in second with 29 percent of the vote, followed by ABC News’ Charlie Gibson with 19 percent of the vote, and Katie Couric rounded out the list with 7 percent of the vote.

This is from a Time Magazine poll.

Chu is making Energy “relevant” and this is why he is real and why his agency will make a difference in people’s lives. He combines brilliance with a great deal of humanity – and that is waht sets him apart. How many Nobels are you on Facebook with?

You are the first Cabinet member I’ve met from the Obama administration that seems alive. You are the first one,”).

ut then again I have soft spot for nerds. Let’s be honest can you think of anyone more interesting alive today than Stephen William Hawking? He always tops my list of people I would like to meet.
