Idaho Mayor Keeps Job On Coin Flip

Heads or tails? That was the question posed Thursday night to Don Bowden, the mayor of the Idaho town of Albion with a population of less than 300. The stakes? His job. After he tied with challenger John Davis in the Nov. 5 election at 60 votes apiece, a coin flip was called to determine the winner. Bowden correctly picked tails, allowing him to stay in office for another term/NPR. More here.

Question: Which side of the coin do you pick on coin flips? Why?
