IQ: Giving up the meat 

It wasn't bound to happen, but it is to our utter surprise. Specifically, more and more Americans are asking themselves, which is truly the greater danger to President Bush: Iraq's alleged weapons program or a salted pretzel?

Who should be the next mayor of Colorado Springs? A democratic female.

Where should Saddam Hussein be exiled? To the United States. They put him in power; maybe they should take him back.

What do you think about the fact that the president is facing such increased opposition to the war both at home and overseas? Possibly because the administration isn't absolutely truthful about their intentions or their reasons why we're involved.

What food product nearly killed our president? Wasn't it a pretzel? What kind of meat don't you eat anymore? Bacon. It's unhealthy.

Who should be the next mayor? I'd love to see [Richard] Skorman. It's time for a little bit more progressive Republican government.

Where should Hussein be exiled? Whatever country would have him.

What do you think about the increased opposition to the war? I think it's great. I despise George Bush. I want to see him discredited. I want people to see him for what he really is.

What food product nearly killed our president? Was it a head of broccoli?

What kind of meat don't you eat anymore? I married a vegetarian 12 years ago. My beef consumption has probably dropped 95 percent.

Who should be the next mayor? Someone with some foresight into the physical planning and growth of this city.

Where should Hussein be exiled? Why should he be exiled from his own country? If his people want him to be exiled, that's their choice, not ours. What do you think about the increased opposition to the war? It's about time. I think that people should protest and use the constitutional rights that have been granted to us.

What food product nearly killed our president? Probably steak and potatoes.

What kind of meat don't you eat anymore? I try to avoid chicken because of the poor hygienic conditions they're finding at the processing plants.

Who should be the next mayor? I don't like any of them, but if I had to go with anybody, it would be Lionel Rivera. He'd make sure that we have good arts.

Where should Hussein be exiled? Oh, he shouldn't. He should be killed. There is no safe place to put him.

What do you think about the increased opposition to the war? The [people] don't want it. But...I think [President Bush] wants Hussein so bad that he'll do anything.

What food product nearly killed our president? Undercooked meat?
