What have I become?

Maybe a skeptic of the first class. Yikes. But seriously, I was not aware of this side effect of grad school. Stats and Eva's class, I believe, were the biggest culprit of turning me into a doubt-everything Thomas. For example, I saw the link for this article (http://utahdatapoints.com/2011/03/who-has-the-decisive-vote-in-the-utah-legislature/) earlier and when reading it, my immediate thoughts were whoa whoa whoa, hang on. You're arguing what?!

Anyway, now I want to discuss this. Are these stats valid? Do you think it really demonstrates power to have voted with the majority the most-- why wouldn't that show herd mentality? Anyone who's bored and wants to relive program eval, let me know :)
