Newton Poll - 10-02-10

The Newton Citizen Poll is a compilation of opinions submitted by readers. They do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Citizen newspapers. If you agree or disagree with something you read here, you may respond by e-mailing poll@newtoncitizen.com. Please remember that the Citizen Poll is not a forum for comments either for or in opposition to candidates seeking elective office."I've been a subscriber to the Citizen for 10 years. The Citizen Poll used to have opinions in it that were important to the community. In the Sept. 25th Citizen there were opinions from T-Bone, Possum and Pork Chop. Do they really have an opinion on anything or do they just like to see the names they use for themselves in print? I think if the Citizen can edit any of these opinions, they should edit out these people's '5 seconds of fame' names. I'm close to skipping this section of the paper and maybe discontinuing my subscription. Money is too precious these days to waste on this junk."
