Who won the Monday Night Football game?

The Seattle Seahawks. I looked at the results in the paper and it said the Seahawks won. (45.81% - 361 votes)

All those anti-gambling web sites. An estimated $150 million in betting went to the wrong people because of the refs. (12.69% - 100 votes)

The city of Vancouver is proposing to only allow personal fireworks to be discharged on the Fourth of July, instead of allowing them July 1 through 4. What do you think?

Personal fireworks should be banned in Vancouver, but this is a step in the right direction. (17.47% - 91 votes)

This is a waste of time on a law that will be impossible to enforce. (16.31% - 85 votes)

I don't like the idea because it will hurt the nonprofit organizations that sell fireworks. (35.32% - 184 votes)

I don't like the idea because I love having four days to set off fireworks. (11.52% - 60 votes)
