Is Steven Seagal STILL a cop? Seems weird you would remain a police officer if you were a legit celeb, unless you were that passionate about ur job for some reason

Clint Eastwood was Mayor of Carmel, Ca. a few years back. Still worked in film industry. Mayor was only a part time job. Fred Dalton Thompson was on Law and Order while serving the end of his term as a US Senator from Tennessee.

My pick is Dennis Farina (RIP) - 175%.

I don't think he is known best for Law & Order. He was only on the show for two seasons. I suggest mentioning Get Shorty, Out of Sight and Midnight Run.

There's no space in Honeymooners.

You need a question mark at the end of this statement: Oh and who is Ken.

Capitalization edits needed - The celebrities in this list were officers before or after achieving fame.

FYC:
Ted Nugent (even though I despise him with my full being, he was a reserve deputy constable in Texas)
Chuck Norris - military police
Elvis Presley - Nixon made him an honorary drug enforcement agent
Dan Akroyd - honorary commander with Harahan PD in Louisiana
Lou Ferrigno - full reserve San Luis Obispo County reserve deputy and reserve deputy in Los Angeles county
Erik Estrada - reserve officer with St. Anthony PD, St. Anthony Idaho, deputy sheriff in Bedford County, VI and reserve officer in Muncie, IN
David Zayas - NYPD cop for 15 years
Steve Wilkos - police officer in Chicago

Hi, CliffJ. Well, expressing such low self-esteem and placing somebody else at the right hand of god, so to speak, might come off as a little extreme, as perhaps flattery or contrarily sarcasm. Nobody is faulting you for not being able to swoop in and instantly steal the show here. Please just relax. Fly casual, as Han Solo would say. You can, without making a big scene, improve yourself and help others improve.

Cliff, when I started it took me six months to get the first poll picked, it was driving me crazy but all the first attempts allowed me to practice and to brainstorm inside a realm of possibilities that lead me to the big idea "how about making a poll about quotes?" I suggested the first thing that came to my mind and Bingo, it went live within a few days... but it still took six months....

Ive taken a lot of Polls and I have peeked in here off and on for a few years so I kind of had a rough Idea of how they should look. Having two rather quickly is good then. Thanks for the input. I'm good with quotes. You have given me an Idea I would not have thought of. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

CliffJ,

I merged your original attempt to post a poll suggestion, into this thread. Duplicate threads from the same author for the same idea makes it more difficult to review and refine polls.

The spam filter probably initially blocked this the original thread because of the predominance of images.

The word "entertainer" might be more appropriate than the word "celebrity".

I personally did not think this poll would make it. To my surprise it has had the most votes in the shortest time since going live. Go figure!
