    Bells of familiarity are not just ringing here; they’re clanging! Hey, how’s the website working? And did anybody read the survey before it was passed? Or was it passed first so that we all could find out what was in it later? Are other surveys being canceled by the millions? (OK, I’ll stop now.)

    You’re right, too, about the Family Feud thing. To paraphrase Yogi Berra: If Richard Dawson were alive he’d be turning over in his grave about this survey.
