    yep, all those corporations, politicians, churches and governments have been wasting their money for decades with these silly, meaningless surveys.  they've been duped by the Pews of the world...at least, that's the results of the comments here.
    take a look at the statistical models used in these surveys (political polling for example) and compare their expectations with the final results aka. margins of error.  without sampling, you'd have to ask every single person and, at some point, there is a diminishing return.  Statistical theory has been proven again and again...not sure why i'm trying to change your minds...> 3.5 std. deviations.

    Using your logic, all surveys are meaningless and all sampling is invalid.  99.9 % of people would disagree.

    @sosarx...I think you missed the survey headline.

    When I look at the overall results, they do seem to fall into predictable levels.  That, to me, adds validity.  I only posted the survey because of the U.S. reputation with Islam and Chávez compared to our ally.

    can you ask for two estimates? can you offer to have the scratch repaired yourself?    if it's minor, it might be just buffed out.  900 sounds like more than minor.

    Toytown's new format
    Is the new Local format on the front page (where the headline fades out and you can't read it) an improvement?
