It’s June 10, 2016. I haven’t done a Friday Yes or No in months, due largely to the fact that I had to teach a class on Fridays up until a month ago.

But that’s over, and so is the hiatus for Yes or No. Here goes:

Q1: Are these the best days of the year, being both long and warm?

A1: Yes

Q2: Has the Stanford Rapist case been blown out of proportion?

A2: No

Q3: Is that because it’s about time that people understood the consequences of violence against women, and that’s what the letter written by the victim in the case helps to show?

A3: Yes

Q4: And because the cluelessness of the rapist, his family and the judge in the case is staggering?

A4: Yes

Q5: Are Americans paying enough attention to the Brexit vote scheduled later this month in the U.K.?

A5: No

Q6: Is Brexit, Britain’s exit from the European Union, a good idea?

A6: No

Q7: Will I write more about that as the vote draws near?

A7: Yes

Q8: Do I generally like the players the Mets drafted last night?

A8: Yes

Q9: Do I care who wins the NBA championship or Stanley Cup?

A9: No

Q10: Is there any surprise in President Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton?

A10: No

Q11: Is there any surprise in Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton?

A11: No

Q12: So these developments aren’t a big deal, right?

A12: No

Q13: They are?

A13: Yes

Q14: Is that because it’s a sign that the Democrats are putting their best battlers together for the tough campaign ahead?

A14: Yes

Q15: Does my 10-day moratorium on mentioning the name of Clinton’s opponent end next week?

A15: Yes

Q16: Has it been easy to maintain this?

A16: God, no!
