It is on my list of things to do today to write in this blog. I have been planning the topics I want to write about and the personal questions I have gotten. I wanted to field them here. So, if you have one, feel free to email me and I will attempt to answer them here on the blog.
I got a questionnaire in the mail from Raleigh's "The News and Observer" for their upcoming voter's guide. I emailed them the answers to their questions in the format requested and included the photo that you see on the blog. So that there is no surprise, and so that we can document what I sent them and compare the final product to what I wrote, here are the questions and answers exactly as I submitted them in the exact format requested. The ONLY difference will be the hyperlinks that I have installed in some of my answers to allow you to navigate to the sources of my answers, should you wish.
