Still undecided? Try this website

GlassBooth is another one of those websites that can help you decide which candidate more closely matches your opinion about different areas in politics. What I found different with this site is it actually tells you why you don’t match a candidate for the particular area.

From Digital Wilderness
What was the very last song you listened to?
A Tribe Called Quest – Electric Relaxation
What is one company/store/corporation you would recommend that people stay away from?
Max and Ermas in  Crestview Hills, KY.  I think Emily and I have been there 5 or 6 times since they opened, and everytime we go, excedpt one time probably, the service has been terrible.  Orders screwed up, 30+ minutes for food to arrive, empty glasses for an entire meal, etc.  Too bad too, because they have really good pretzel sticks.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy having your picture taken?
5 -I’m usually the one taking pictures.
Main Course
Besides a bookmark, what is something you’ve used to keep your place in a book?
Post-in notes, magazine subscription cards
Name a food that you like that most people don’t.
Peanut butter and Bologna sandwhiches.  I think my Dad is the only person I know who has had one besides me.
