Above are the poll results that were discussed in this post. There were 60 votes and it looks like about 78% of the Dixie Yid readers would like to see political or controversial topics handled at least occassionally from an "Emunah'dik perspective" on this blog. Only about 18% felt that such things should never be addressed, even by just a link, or even occassionally. Obviously, halacha trumps what I or anyone else thinks and so if something were prohibited, then no amount of "popular support" would make it muter. But it seems clear that a large majority would like to see current topics addressed, at least once in a blue moon. Obviously, I'll still only write about things that my heart or mind moves me to write about, but since this is a benevolent dictatorship, I am interested and will be mindful of what those people who choose to read this blog think. Thanks to all of you who participated. It's good to know more about what y'all think, especially those who I don't know as much about because you don't normally leave comments!
