It’s September 2, 2016, and 67 days until the election. Welcome to 20 Questions Friday, when I decide to ask questions for the sake of asking questions. It’s a different way of thinking and a chance to tie up any loose ends from the week.
Have a great holiday weekend, and here we go:
— How great would life be if, on Nov. 9, Donald Trump has lost and there really is a taco truck on every corner?
— Are there really people in this country who watched Trump’s Mexican debacle on Wednesday and said to themselves “Now that’s leadership”?
— What is the percentage of Americans who are descended from slaveowners?
— Are your Labor Day weekend plans affected by Hermine?
— Will the taco trucks on every corner sell only tacos, or will there also be enchiladas, flautas and tostadas?
— Is a report showing 151,000 jobs added in August a disappointment or a reflection of the fact that the U.S. economy might not be growing as quickly as we believed?
— Do you think “Uh-oh, Zika virus” every time you find a mosquito bite on your body?
— Would it bother you if you knew that one of your ancestors was a slaveowner?
— Can expired epinephrene in EpiPens be recycled to help bring down the cost?
— How much does kids going back to school diminish the Labor Day weekend?
— When will Dixie Chicks release another album?
— Are you as disappointed as I am that someone from PBS, such as Judy Woodruff or Gwen Ifill, isn’t among the presidential debate moderators?
— Does anybody still use Bosco?
— Is there a portable dome that you can bring for use if there’s bad weather at your outdoor event?
— Did wearing socks with pigs in police outfits diminish or enhance Colin Kaepernick’s position on not standing for the National Anthem?
— If Georgetown is offering preferential admission consideration to the descents of people it sold into slavery, should others descended from slaveowners do something similar?
— Who came up with the stupid idea that people – especially women – shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day?
— How deep is the ocean? (First in a series of question song title questions)
— What’s the most memorable thing you’ve ever done on Labor Day weekend?
— Will the taco trucks on every corner if Trump loses also sell those Mexican sodas that are so popular?
