It’s January 15, 2016 and time for a late afternoon edition of Friday Yes or No. I ask questions about things other people might be interested in. I give the shortest answer possible – for me.
Q1: Did you turn on last night’s Republican presidential debate?
Q2: Did you watch the whole thing?
Q3: Is that because it could shorten people’s lives to be that kind of angry for that sustained a period?
Q4: Was anybody on that stage presidential material?
Q5: Was anybody asking questions for Fox Business journalistic material?
Q6: Is the two-week stock market tumble scary?
Q7: Is this the beginning of a recession?
Q8: Is that because the American economy is strong enough to withstand this onslaught of fear about China’s economy?
Q9: And also because the drop in gasoline prices, while hurting companies in the oil industry, will help keep American consumers solvent in the months to come?
Q10: Has there been ample coverage of the Flint water crisis?
Q11: Is it a scandal that the city’s water supply has been found to be comparable to toxic waste?
Q12: Has this winter been a hardship?
Q13: But it’s not over yet, is it?
