    The results will be on the CBS evening news Tuesday, December 18. Apparently I'm an important demographic :cheer: they left a message while I was on vacation and called back today, which did surprise me

    They asked the expected questions, approve or disapprove of Congress, the President, etc. Asked about the "fiscal cliff," taxes and debt ceiling, Syria, all the things you would expect.

    Then they threw me a few curves

    Who is the quintessential film actor/actress?

    Bogart
    Denzel
    Clooney
    Grant
    Jack
    some other guy I forget

    (would have picked Brando if he were a choice)


    Davis
    Taylor
    Streep
    Loren
    Close
    Hale Berry---(wtf?)



    Who should play Hillary Clinton in a movie?

    Streep
    Close
    Britten
    Helen Mirren
    Amanda Byrnes

    What is the worst first date movie?

    thriller
    drama
    foreign
    tear jerker
    romantic comedy

    Who has the hardest job in a movie

    actor
    director
    writer
    PR
    assistant


    I found the survey interesting, mostly because the questions were so general and the choices for answers so vague they really couldn't get to my real opinion on each issue. they said a reporter may call back to ask more probing :giggle: questions, but I doubt it.

    I always do surveys, I feel bad for the folks who call, I'm sure they get hung up on 100's of times, and I think in general they serve a purpose
