Of the 44 U.S. presidents, all but a handful have been affiliated with a relatively narrow list of traditional Protestant denominations. Eleven were Episcopalians (12 if you count Thomas Jefferson, whose adult beliefs are a subject of debate), eight were Presbyterians, four were Methodists and four were Baptists. Others included Congregationalists, Dutch Reformed and Disciples of Christ. President Barack Obama attended Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, a congregation with traditional Protestant roots despite its untraditional pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In Washington, Mr. Obama has attended services at mostly black Protestant churches.

A scientific report released yesterday revealed serious flaws in FBI testimony involving evidence on the chemical composition of bullets presented in hundreds of criminal cases. The report stopped short of condemning the forensic method outright, but it proposed changes in how the bureau portrays bullet-lead evidence that would significantly undercut the technique's usefulness in a criminal trial, forensic science experts said. The report called FBI testimony that crime-scene bullets could be linked to bullets found in a box owned by a suspect, or to similar boxes manufactured at the same time, "seriously misleading" and "objectionable."

WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court yesterday said that four journalists could be held in contempt for not revealing their sources in writing about Wen Ho Lee, the former nuclear weapons scientist targeted as a possible spy. The ruling was the second in as many days in which a court has sanctioned the media for protecting confidential sources and comes at a time when the media are facing increased questions about bias and accuracy. Lee - who worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico - was the subject of an FBI and Energy Department investigation in the late 1990s into the possibility that the nation's weapons secrets were being passed to China.

LOS ANGELES -- Times Mirror Co., the nation's No. 3 publisher of newspapers, said yesterday that fourth-quarter profit fell nearly 12 percent because of higher interest expense from new debt to fund a transaction with its controlling Chandler family. Profit from continuing operations fell to $67.5 million from $75.5 million in the year-earlier period. A decrease in the number of shares outstanding caused per-share profit to rise to $1.03 from 87 cents, matching analysts' estimates. Times Mirror and the Chandler family last year transferred $2.5 billion in cash, investments and stock to a new partnership as part of a recapitalization that cut the number of Times Mirror's shares outstanding and its preferred dividend payments.
