Results from a Reader's Digest poll show that more Americans trust "Judge" Judy Sheindlin more than any justice on the United States Supreme Court.

Granted, the poll also shows that the top five most trusted people in the United States are Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, and Maya Angelou. I suppose this makes sense; after all, Tom Hanks always seems to portray such nice guys in his movies!

I suppose we can regard these results as yet another monument to our country's sad state of civic awareness. It's especially disappointing that Judge Judy—whom we should regard more as an entertainer than a fair arbitrator—appears to be the most trusted "judge" in America.

Sometimes you just have to wonder.....
