Desperately seeking simple questions

I had an entire section on the need to ask the right questions in Senate inquiries written for today’s Newsstand column, at least in draft form, but as it has been the case every single time, column-writing for me is as much a question of deciding which parts to leave out as which parts to keep.

Good thing there is the Net. The parts I left out yesterday (in truth those that consumed the most time in research) are in today’s Inquirer Current, albeit in rewritten form.

If you agree with the following sentiment:

I realize that many of our senators do not know how to ask simple questions, because they are not so much interested in ferreting out information as in imposing an interpretation.

then this post may be worth a read.
