Short snappers (well not really)

It's not Friday for another few hours, but I plan to get up early tomorrow and go on a road trip so you're getting these a few hours early. They also depart from the usual concept of "short snappers" which are supposed to be quick "A or B" type questions, but my mind just wasn't working that way tonight. So here goes:



Poll #1036565 Short snappers

Barry Bonds just hit his 756th home run to set the major league record. Your opinion?

Good for him. Hitting that many home runs is quite an accomplishment.
24(20.3%)
I'm pissed off that he broke the record. He was probably on steroids for a lot of them.
26(22.0%)
Barry who? What's a home run?
35(29.7%)
I know who Barry Bonds is and what he did, but neither of those choices accurately reflect my opinion on this. I'll comment.

Two people in Louisiana who ran a nursing home have been charged criminally because 35 people died in it when Katrina hit. They decided not to evacuate the home. Their defence is: it's not our fault, blame the US Corps of Engineers for building a useless levee. You're on the jury. Guilty or not guilty? (I know you'd listen to the evidence first, but what's your first instinct?)

Guilty
80(69.6%)
Not Guilty
35(30.4%)
