It’s December 18, 2015 and time for Friday Yes or No. I ask myself great questions. I give blunt answers. I demonstrate some sort of wit and wisdom in the process.
Q1: Did anyone expect you to do a Friday Yes or No next Friday, Christmas Day?
Q2: Have you gotten over the dark cloud of doom that was the most recent Republican presidential debate?
Q3: Do you think Chris Christie is aware yet that he plans to meet with a Jordanian king who’s been dead for 16 years and that the threat to bomb Los Angeles’ schools was a hoax?
Q4: Are you happy for newsroom friends who, thanks to today’s votes in Congress, won’t have to spend the holidays worried about a government shutdown?
Q5: Doesn’t Martin Shkreli seem like the type of guy you want to punch in the nose on first sight?
Q6: And yet, does it bother you that none of the charges against him have to do with price gouging on life-saving drugs?
Q7: President Obama is trying to reassure Americans that they are safe this Christmas time. Can he really do that?
Q8: Is that because we have no idea what a single nut case like the ones in Colorado Springs or San Bernardino will do?
Q9: But, generally speaking, when the President says he’s doing all he can to keep Americans safe, do you believe him?
Q10: And do you think he’s been weak and ineffectual against terrorists?
Q11: Has this been a tough year?
Q12: Are you glad it’s over?
Q13: Are you looking for to writing about things that matter to people in 2016?
Q14: Do you wish folks a happy holiday today?
Q15: Is that because you plan to write next week?
