The Nevada caucuses are coming up and, if you’re anything like us, you’re pretty confused about how they work.

That’s the trouble with democracy these days: It’s simple in theory, but it gets really messy in practice.

We’re sure we’ll figure out how it all works by Jan. 19. In the meantime, we offer a simple diversion of a straight up-or-down vote on some of the hotly debated issues of our day.

Superman or Spider-Man. The Maloof brothers or the Fertitta brothers. Showgirls or call girls. And a few other topics we all have debated with fiery passion and for no important reason.

We’re calling this little time-waster the R-J’s First (and Probably Last) Pop Culture Poll of Things That Really Matter.

Here’s how it works: We offer up a few A-or-B-type choices. You simply choose one or the other, based on whatever critiera you’d like to employ. And, in the comments section of the ballot, just tell us why — and on what basis — you made your picks. You’ll find the ballot on Page 4J.

There are no prizes, but merely the satisfaction of letting your voice be heard and enjoying a fun break in what’s becoming a very long campaign season.

So send your ballots to:

Review-Journal Pop Culture Poll, Features Section, P.O. Box 70, Las Vegas, NV 89125-0070.

Make sure to write your name, age, address and daytime phone number (not to be published) on the ballot in case we need further information. Deadline is 5 p.m. Friday. We’ll run the results in an upcoming Living section.

Let the debate commence.
