Last week's question:

How concerned are you about the contamination of spinach, tomatoes and other foodstuffs?

· Not at all. There's always going to be a small degree of risk in everything we eat. - 15 votes (31 percent)

· Very little. In the grand scheme of things, only a very small percentage of consumers gets sick. - Five votes (10 percent)

· Somewhat. It's a concern, but it gets a lot more media attention than it's worth. - Seven votes (14 percent)


· A good bit. We have a right to think that anything we purchase for consumption is healthy. - 11 votes (22 percent)

· A lot. These events are minor cracks in the food-chain armor that could be a harbinger of potential problems on a much larger scale. - 10 votes (20 percent)

· Who eats store-bought tomatoes? - One vote (2 percent)

This week's question:

Should a Washington County County School Board candidate who purchased a tape of a public meeting have to return it because it might be a factor in a lawsuit?

· No, it's a ridiculous request. It was a public meeting, for goodness sakes.

· No, not unless a judge says the tape should be returned.

· No, it was the School Board's decision to release it. Why bail out the system?

· Yes, when the School Board asks citizens to help out, they should fall in line, no questions asked.

· Yes, because there are more important issues facing School Board candidates.
