Name the Radio Heartland computer

hal.jpgVote for something truly important! Dale Connelly asks you to exercise your right to be counted:

"It is time, dear listeners, to bestow a permanent name on our third staff member, the ubiquitous computer who controls most of Radio Heartland's schedule."
Of course HAL (with a necessarily new acronym, naturally) is an option, but you'll find other potential names in the poll...but according to Dale, "Lizard People" is not an option.

At time of writing, JEEVES - Jim Ed Electronic Virtual Entertainment System is in the lead with 30% of the votes. Vote now!

Speaking of the president-elect, MPR's Public Insight Journalism team wants to know about your plans for Inauguration Day:

Estimates for the number of people going to Washington D.C. have ranged from 2 million to 5 million.

Are you going to be a part of that crowd? Or are you planning on observing Inauguration Day in some other way?

This could be interesting, and perhaps more revealing than you might expect. Share your plans with MPR.
