Apples and iguanas.

Another one of those little snippets that bounces around nearly constantly in my head is "Answers can be incorrect, questions can't."

Obviously, it refers to pure questions, not questions paired with statements such as "What time was it when you were beating your wife?"

I may have to rethink the whole thing, however.

The Baxter Bulletin has a poll up with a question so flawed that I don't know it CAN be fixed.

It draws a moral equivalency between government and property owners. It supposes that the two are either equally legitimate in enacting such a ban or equally illegitimate.

Of COURSE property owners should be able to institute such a ban in what is, after all, THEIR property.

But the government has no business telling the property owner what he can or cannot allow on his own property.

It would be akin to a parent saying "MTV is not allowed in this house." Does the government have an equal right to step in and say "MTV is not allowed in your house"? I don't think so.

On a barely related note, they haven't emailed me an activation code yet so I can post this point as a comment on their story.
