Our poll question, "Does Hollywood have a responsibility to portray democratic institutions in a fair and accurate manner?", which was inspired by the posting about the movie Evan Almighty, was up for more than a month and drew 95 votes. We were surprised by the results of this one, expecting that the great majority would respond "no" on the basis that Hollywood is in the business of selling stories and anything is fair game. Instead the results were close with 45 (47 percent) of our readers saying "yes" and 50 (53 percent) "no."
Again proof that our readers truly are legislative junkies.
