If you’ve been a longtime reader of the Intramuralist, you’ll know that the question mark is my favorite punctuation piece. Why?
Because no other mark invites a response.
Let us thus discuss the events of the today via questions — 20, in fact. Some are mine, some are not… but all are respectfully — albeit some playfully — asked…
- Who leads in a government shut down?
- How long can this last?
- Why do members of the Executive and Legislative Branches still get paid during a shut down?
- How will Broadway star Carol Channing be remembered?
- What is “toxic masculinity”?
- Is there such a thing as “toxic femininity”?
- Does not everyone know that the terms “white nationalist” and “white supremacy” are offensive?
- Why do some choose to be anti-Semitic?
- Can we please restore (and model) compromise and civility?
- Is the “Notorious RBG” ok?
- What could we all learn from the sweet friendship of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the late Antonin Scalia?
- Has anyone noticed Netflix is going to raise our rates?
- Does Sen. Bernie Sanders own a comb?
- What does yesterday’s vote rejecting the Prime Minister of England’s plan to exit the European Union actually mean?
- Who will win between the Chiefs/Patriots and Saints/Rams this weekend?
- How long can Tom Brady and Drew Brees actually play?
- Exactly how many people will run for President?
- How much economic experience is required?

- And, what more questions should we be asking, which would spur on more dialogue, which is always better than shouting opinions at one another?
Yes, just asking questions, friends.
It is the only punctuation piece that invites a response.
