The final results are in for my survey this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors whether the Pet Shop Boys have served as positive role models 
for them -- and, if so, how? And the response that received the largest 
number of votes was:

* "They've inspired me to become interested in and/or to develop my 
knowledge of the arts, literature, history, or some other subject," chosen 
by 40.5% of the voters.

To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at 
http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and click the "Past Survey Results" 
button in the left navigation bar.

Recently I've gotten a lot of input -- most of it quite polite and 
constructive, but occasionally insulting -- about my weekly polls. Some site 
visitors believe that they've more or less "run their course" and that I 
should give up on them, or at least not run them so often. Others are OK 
with continuing the weekly surveys but feel that the questions have been 
"stretching it" a bit lately and that I should make the questions much 
simpler. Actually, I've been toying with the idea of scaling back on my 
polls in one way or another, anyway. So I may be trying out some new things 
in the weeks and months ahead. For one thing, this week's poll is a rather 
simple, straightforward one: what is your favorite version of the recent 
single "Did You See Me Coming?"

Then, just below the survey, I've posted something brand new: the first of 
what may become a series of weekly PSB trivia games. I'm very interested in 
hearing what you think of it. Do you like it? Should I replace my weekly 
poll with weekly trivia contests -- if not permanently, then at least on a 
temporary basis? Or maybe I should alternate between polls and trivia games 
from one week to the next. I welcome your feedback.

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And I 
hope you all have a most enjoyable week ahead!
