I just got called for survey purposes (about the economy, health care, and the like); I thought that it was a bit odd when they asked me if I was a blogger (not just a journalist), but hey, maybe that’s the new best standard? And they seemed happy enough when I said that I generally blog about entertainment topics. At any rate, I was willing to devote five minutes of my time to the cause of statistics.

Or at least I was until I heard the first question: “do you think the country is basically going in the right direction or do you think things are going pretty seriously off track?” Yeah, survey purposes, right.

Time to go e-mail my various representatives, I think, just to provide a bit of a nudge in the direction I want?
