Eighty-six percent of the respondents to our poll are predicting that the Carolina Panthers will win Super Bowl XXXVIII on Sunday.
We have more faith in the collective wisdom of our readers than we do, say, the oddsmakers in Las Vegas, who have pronounced the Panthers as 7-point underdogs to the New England Patriots.
We, too, are predicting a Carolina victory, with the recipe being good defense and special teams play, a ball-control offense and no turnovers.
A score? How about 17-14 with kicker John Kasay kicking the winner after a last-minute drive engineered by running back Stephen Davis and quarterback Jake Delhomme.
Now, this week's question.
David Kay, the retired weapons inspector, has concluded after nine months of investigation that Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction. But Kay concludes that President Bush wasn't the only one believing Iraq had the weapons; Saddam Hussein did as well. Kay found that top scientists diverted money Saddam provided for the weapons to their own uses and that the programs were not in full development.
Kay also found that terrorists were frequent visitors to Iraq, and concluded that Iraq was a growing threat to world stability.
But some Democrats are charging that Bush intentionally misled the nation in order to wage war on Iraq. Do you agree?
