Editor's Column: Wait, sir! Read this before you burn the paper

In more than a quarter century of newspaper work, I’ve received my share of vile phone messages. Last week I got a doozy.
It even tops the voice mail I got a few months ago from some guy who threatened to cut off my head and burn my body. I filed a police report on that one, so that if I turned up headless, the cops would have a logical place to start the investigation.
Here’s the latest message. There’s a bit of rough language, but I dashed out the objectionable words.

Poll

Should special interest groups, like those for and against the incorporation of Indian Land, be allowed at polling locations?

Yes. They should be allowed to request signatures from voters by the poll entrance before they vote.
7% (6 votes)
Yes, but they should only be allowed to talk to voters at the poll entrance after they vote.
4% (4 votes)
Yes, but they should be 200 feet away from the poll entrance at all times.
26% (23 votes)
No. These groups should use other avenues to persuade voters and gather signatures.
63% (57 votes)
Total votes: 90
