I just came across this Yahoo article about the most and least trusted professions in America. It turns out the most trusted occupation is the military. They get a 78% trust rating. Having been a military man once, I can relate. Not too far down the list are engineers at a 63% trust rating. Having to run the numbers does tend to keep us honest. Mostly. And near the bottom of the list are journalists. They get a 23% rating. If you are reading this, I have sad news to report. For me. I'm not only former military and an engineer, but I'm also a journalist. There has to be some redeeming value in there.
Can I take an average of the three to at least get me above 50%?
