Four For Friday

Q1 - Legislative Perks: In Indiana, home to the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts, 45 state lawmakers took advantage of the Colts' offer to buy two tickets at $600.00 each to attend the Super Bowl game in Miami, FL. Do you think state law makers or members of Congress should be given preferential treatment when it comes to purchasing highly sought after tickets to sporting events? No, I think they should wait in line like everyone else.

Q2 - Fast Food: Putting aside for a moment how bad you know it is for you, what is your favorite fast food meal? McDonalds #10...I think that's the chicken nugget meal. I love chicken nuggets.

Q3 - Rules of the Street: For some, the lure of an iPod may be less about music and more about blotting out the world around them. But in some major New York cities, at least, the pause button could soon be pressed on this most modern of luxuries because someone has decided it's dangerous. New York State Senator Carl Kruger plans to introduce legislation that would ban the use of handheld devices such as BlackBerries, iPods, cell phones, and portable video games while crossing streets in major New York cities. Under the proposed law, pedestrians and bicyclists caught using any kind of electronic device while crossing a street would be hit with a $100.00 fine. Do you agree with Kruger's proposal? Should handheld devices be banned in certain public settings? No, I think that's ridiculous. If you are not responsible to cross a street and talk on the phone, listen to music, etc at the same time, then you are very responsible for whatever happens to you.

Q4 - Movie Ratings: The American Medical Association Alliance will soon release the results of a national survey that it says shows that the majority of adults support an "R" rating for Hollywood movies that feature people smoking cigarettes. What do you think? Should movies featuring cigarette smoking actors or actresses be given an "R" rating? They don't even give a high enough rating for sexual content or foul language, and they want to raise it because of smoking? Get a handle on the current ratings and make them suitable first!
