It’s November 13, 2015, or 11/13/15, the last time the date can be three consecutive odd numbers this century. Next time it happens is January 3, 2105. I won’t be here.
Anyway, it’s time again for Friday Yes or No. I devise questions that I can answer simply and without equivocation. It’s that simple.
Q1: When Donny Trump went on his rant about Dr. Ben Carson being pathological, do you suspect he was off his meds?
Q2: After questioning the intelligence of Iowans, does a Trump Plaza Des Moines have much chance of succeeding?
Q3: Of course it’s not nice to wish death on someone, but don’t you really, really hope the U.S. got ISIS’ “Jihadi John,” the bastard on those videos beheading American journalists and aid workers.
Q4: And that he rots in hell?
Q5: In a game I normally don’t care that much about, will I be pulling for Missouri against BYU tomorrow night?
Q6: Will the success the Missouri football team had in ousting the university’s president for inaction against racist incidents translate to other constructive developments for students?
Q7: That’s because this was a push-comes-to-shove moment, and the only times something like a possible strike by a major college team would work is when so much is at stake?
Q8: Was the cardboard VR device the Times put out last week cool?
Q9: Will it change journalism?
Q10: Is this a good time to go get a Starbucks Oprah Chai in a red holiday season cup, in part to give the middle finger to the war on Christmas putzes?
