EDITORIAL: Clarifying the question

A few readers have expressed some confusion about our ?We?re Asking? question below. They don?t like the fact that the question reads like an ?all or nothing? referendum on a new hospital facility.

We agree?on both counts. Yes, the question can be read that way, and yes, we don?t like it either. Unfortunately our Internet poll question format allows for only yes-or-no answers and not multiple choice. Our thought was, let?s consider one option at a time and narrow the options a bit.

So this question is merely a first step: If it came down to spending up to $10 million for a new hospital, or having no hospital at all in Marion County, what would you choose? Our next question will test another option. Let us know what you think.
