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?
Q2: Has the Stanford Rapist case been blown out of proportion?
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?
Q4: And because the cluelessness of the rapist, his family and the judge in the case is staggering?
Q5: Are Americans paying enough attention to the Brexit vote scheduled later this month in the U.K.?
Q6: Is Brexit, Britain’s exit from the European Union, a good idea?
Q7: Will I write more about that as the vote draws near?
Q8: Do I generally like the players the Mets drafted last night?
Q9: Do I care who wins the NBA championship or Stanley Cup?
Q10: Is there any surprise in President Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton?
Q11: Is there any surprise in Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton?
Q12: So these developments aren’t a big deal, right?
Q13: They are?
Q14: Is that because it’s a sign that the Democrats are putting their best battlers together for the tough campaign ahead?
Q15: Does my 10-day moratorium on mentioning the name of Clinton’s opponent end next week?
Q16: Has it been easy to maintain this?
A16: God, no!
