<nettime> Executing Corporate Execs?


Of course, the following are not 'polls' (in the academic sense) and 
even though CNN calls it a 'QuickVote' (this certainly aint no vote 
in a democratic sense) and, in the end, the data only reflects 
whatever guess one can make as to what demographic goes to CNN's 
Moneyline website....

Having said all that and putting the following results with the idea 
of a Death Penalty for Corporations, perhaps in this 
post-Enron/post-A.Anderson moment  there is broader support for the 
idea than one would first assume?

Or maybe the data does not show support for a Death Penalty for 
Corporations but perhaps support for a Death Penalty for Corporate 
Execs?

The 21st century is getting interesting...
