I really wish I could survey folks all the time. What would people choose for the most important issue they are concerned with among the following:
- G20 agenda
- Afghanistan troop levels
- Troy's knee
Does anyone doubt which one would be the top local angst-producer? Notice I don't even pretend for a second that things like pensions, assessments or the lack of a state budget would even be considered on that list. Those trivial things are like the whether the Pirates won yesterday, i.e. things nobody thinks about much these days... sort of like the mayor's race.
