In the poll question that closed last night, 53% favored NATO membership for both Georgia and Ukraine. 40% wanted neither, while 6% back Ukraine alone.

1. On the one hand, the tax was enacted originally to pay for Virginia's share of The War of 1812. It's long been paid for. In addition, the way it is applied is cumbersome for businesses.

Have your say.
