"HELLO, THIS IS DENNIS BOUNDS FROM KING 5 NEWS." Dennis and I worked together at KING-TV in the 1990s. He doesn't need to tell me who he is. Although he's a little loud in my ear, he's a nice man, straightforward; viewers unfortunately miss out on seeing his cowboy boots very often. "WE'RE CONDUCTING A BRIEF SURVEY ABOUT THE UPCOMING ELECTION," booms Dennis, interrupting my 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon nap. After I punch him, I mean punch "1," I'm sent over to a woman's voice who puts me through a short set of yes/no/not sure questions – all of them related to Proposition 1, aka RTID. Do I live on the Eastside? South King County? Do I plan to vote? Will I vote yes, no, or am I still undecided? What do I think about the original Sound Transit ballot proposal and have I gotten my money's worth? After all this, Dennis tells me, "THANK YOU AND WATCH KING 5 FOR THE RESULTS." I hope this isn't considered a scientific survey. Having proclaimed myself to be a 45-year-old black male, I might have some issues with it.
