leave the questions open ended. I realize the temptation to "prove" 
what we already know is great, but the document is a lot more 
powerful when you don't lead or cue the survey respondents. ask 
enough people the question: how does staff treat you? and you'll see 
contempt emerge as a common current.

I have a colleague who is a nationally respected ethnographer and 
sociologist. if you folks develop a survey, I'll be happy to fly it 
past him.

let me know.
