This stormy General Assembly session must be making our legislators a little punch drunk. Alert Hoosier Barry G. Fox sent to Indiana newspapers a link to an e-mail poll by Republican State Sen. Joe Zakas of the 11th District and asked, sensibly, "What kind of question is this?" Here it is:
Do you support or oppose a statewide smoking ban in restaurants, workplaces, bars and casinos?
The answer is, of course, "an unanswerable question." But go ahead and try. Or is this a very clever ploy by the senator, such that he can use the poll results, whatever they are, to support what he wants to do anyway?
