Brooklyn Heights Blog Poll: Kids vs. Dogs vs. Cats vs. Serenity Now!

A few years ago I joked to my pal/BHB CTO Qfwfq that I’d love to do a poll one day pitting kids vs. dogs vs. cats to see how the neighborhood would react. We laughed and thought better of it. That is, until the reaction from today’s post – One Mom’s Battle Against the Wack Jobs of Brooklyn Heights – literally begged the question.

So who is it gonna be? Vote after the jump.

    Getting ready for the start of school, so I have to point put that “begging the question” actually means, ” a form of logical fallacy in which a statement or claim is assumed to be true without evidence other than the statement or claim itself.

    It does not mean “to raise the question”. For the record, I love kids, dogs and cats because everyone knows they’re great. (That’s begging the question.)

    Soulman, I think Homer was trolling the language prescriptivists. “Literally begged the question”, eh?

    Talk about having your cake and eating it, too!

    I won’t say that I could care less…

  • Homer Fink

    Well I’m totally trolling, for sure.

  • David on Middagh

    …and COME ON, cat people, we’re LOSING!

  • WillowSt.Neighbor

    I voted for Serenity but I also have a cat. I guess in the end the cat would win out.

  • Park Lover

    They all pale in comparison to the endless tourist chopper noise!

    Slow news day?

  • Big Dave

    Well the dogs are happy but it should be noted that the cats couldn’t care less…

    To beg a question is to assume a premise that has yet to be proved. It does not mean to suggest or provoke a question.
