Although I don't have "the" answer, our questions seems inadequate to the current situation. I think our questions must become more intelligent, larger or we just need to stop attempts at answering. So many of these simplistic questions beg simplistic answers and there aren't any simplistic answers. We've let ourselves fall into the trap of attempting to answer these simplistic, legalistic type questions with the same type answers. This Q & A type intercourse is designed only to create contention and sell soap on TV. It isn't designed for rational conversation, debate, whatever. Everytime I get one of those "When did you stop beating your wife, Mr. Smith?" sort of questions, I simply tell the questioner that I'll have to think about it.
